Avery, Irving, Eboni, and Avery, Jr. our prayers are with you not just now but always! Even though our hearts are heavy we know that GOD's grace and blessings cover us during this valley experience. Paula laughed, lived and loved with all that she had. We will miss her but know that GOD has her and she is no longer in pain but rejoicing and praising HIM! Love, Leonard, Carol and Carlen
