Craiger Family, my sympathy goes out to you all. Avis gave me lots of good memories of fishing together and going to get coney dogs in Mansfield, playing long games of rummy and talking about God’s word. God Bless you. Paula
To all the Crager family, Sorry to hear about your Mother & Grandmother. You should have fond memories of her. She always talked of her family and dearly loved you all. Seems like we knew her all her life. She grew up as a young girl with our Mom Carey. Dora worked with her at MTD. Still remember the times we visited her at Crestwood Care Center. Our sympathy is with you all, but she is better now with Jesus and walking on streets of Gold. She has run her race and won.—-May God Bless you and remember Jesus Loves you. If there is anything we can do let us know. Ron and Dora Carey
Gary and Stoney, I am sorry for the loss of your mom and grandmother.

We are so sorry for your loss. We will miss Aunt Avie. Mike so enjoyed teasing her and talking to her about when was the best time to collect elderberries. I came to know her as someone who was always interested in what I had to say and a very good listener. It will never be the same driving through Rome without her and Grandma & Grandpa living there. Hugs to you all.
