  • I truly thank God and Jesus Christ for the life of my cousin Reola , what an inspiration she has been to me over the years.. I have tried my best to make her “PSMA” (Positive Spiritual and Mental Attitude) ( no matter what the circumstances) an integral part of my life as i uphold the blood stained banner of Jesus Christ. I can’t wait until we all meet again on the other side of the Jordan where our families will spend eternity together with Jesus Christ. With the love of Jesus Christ, the Joe L. Avery family extends their sincere sympathy to our cousins Al and the Romes family.
