Heartfelt Thanks
Averett Family, I want each of you to know how much I appreciate your kind words of sympathy, your prayers and cards, and the library book that are expressions of your caring for me and my family at the loss of my brother, Chester. I will read the library book when it arrives, remembering my dear brother and the warm thoughts of the many considerate people I work with. Your support has been a big help in dealing with the loss of my big brother. I have shared your outpouring of caring with my sister, Chester's family, my wife and my three children.
