Celebration of Life – Donald George Avery –

By Mel Williams

I had the honor of attending the “Homegoing Services” for Donald George Avery at First Church of God Christian Life Center. The service was indeed celebratory and was very well attended by family, friends and many well-wishers. Among the many folks in attendance were the Honorable Lorraine Morton, Byron Wilson, Clyde Mims, David Taylor, Minister Alex Childress, Community Advocate Sam Johnson, Kitty Williams, Pat Dawson, Carlis Sutton, James “Snookie” Johnson, Brenda “Jones” Wilson, James Wharton, Robert “Bob” Reece, Barbara “Reece” Little, Carl Davis, Fred “Freddie” Burnside, William Towns, and greeting us as Usher In Chief Lois Wedlow. Out of town family included niece Arlene “Avery” Burke and husband Stony and nephew James Avery.

There were many, many more folks in attendance so I’m sure there were others I knew but did not have an opportunity to see or exchange greetings.
