    Pat Jr. just told me he read that Avis Mae passed. Her Daddy, Uncle JB was my favorite Uncle. He loved Avis Mae. I had the pleasure of my Grandson, Mikal & I visiting her in Village Creek after Mom died. Our Mom Gladys Best Riley was Avis Mae's 1st cousin. My Grandma, Edna Bobbitt Best was Uncle JB's oldest & best sister. Uncle JB will be happy to see Avis Mae. Love, Pat Jr. & JoEllen
