I love all the old cars that you built and restored. I dont think there was much the Avis family couldn't build or fix, they were great friend and neighbors, they were always there when you needed them in good times and bad. Kevin jr I wish you comfort and peace always and for all of family and friends.

Still in utter shock and disbelief. There are too many memories to share. Will always remember the fun times we had at the lake and just in life. My heart is breaking for the Avis's. I can't imagine what they are going through. So much loss in so few years. At least your with Joyce and Orville now. Rest in Peace. You're gone, but never forgotten. Prayers and love to you all.
