Default My deepest condolences

to the Avery family. I enjoyed speaking with Bob at Sun n Fun and with Judy and him over the phone. They are truly kind people who made a difference in the lives of homebuilders and children. What a loss to our community and to society.

Default My Sincere Condolences

Being 'local', anytime I needed a specialty tool, I just buzzed up to Avery's. Even if I'd called in my order (knowing I could be in and out the door in 1-minute) I always planned on much longer. Why? I was fascinated by the Avery's birds! I am not a bird person at all, but I was always so intrigued by them. I would always see new awards, ribbons, or some other accolade regarding the birds. When I would ask about it, Judy was always so kind and just loved to tell me all about them. I was very intrigued and fascinated by the time and dedication that she put into raising her birds. I loved the conversations, and offer my sincere condolences to the Avery family.

Such a shame. She and her family are the nicest folks.
My most sincere condolences to Bob and her family.
I was stuck in Dallas giving some training and had a free day so I traveled out to see what they had that I just couldn't live without. The picture with the cats reminded me that one of them followed me around for scratches while I picked up the things I "needed". They gave me a tour around their facility and showed me their machines and projects. Between the Avery family and Jay Pratt I had a most enjoyable day talking little airplanes while stuck away from home.

Default RIP

Condolences to the Avery family on their loss. I bought all of my tools, and just about everything they had in their catalog while I was building my -4. They were always a pleasure to deal with.

I don't spend a whole lot of time on here any more. This is not the kind of news you want to see. I am so sorry to hear this Bob. Judy was a terrific gal and will be sorely missed.
