My husband and I met Averal and Marilyn at the Ravenswood church of God. From there we came together doing many things for God. My Husband Ray, and Averal became jokesters together. I loved the way that Averal took care of Marilyn, you could see the love between them. I enjoyed my time spent with them and will forever miss his smiling face. Love you Marilyn I am praying that Gods loving arms wrap them around you and comfort for you.

Love Margie.

May Averal and Ray meet back up in heaven and continue their journey with God together.
