Avery, adored by her brothers, was her momma’s “Baby Girl” and her daddy’s “Little Princess.” She loved to swing and play outside, her dogs Dallas and Callie, and playing with and watching Minnie Mouse. A sassy and fearless little girl, Avery’s laugh was contagious; bringing joy and laughter to everyone she met. Even at just two, she was very loving and showed great compassion.
