Avery was killed in a motorcycle accident on May 21, 2011. Today is his 22nd birthday and first in heaven. 10 short days from today is his one year angelversary. Such a tough month for his family.
I can remember Avery helping my cousin, David, cut our grass when we first moved into our house. He was so well mannered and always sweet to my girls. I can remember walking by Avery in passing when I was at Lander shortly before Erik died. He always had a smile on his face and always spoke to me - even though he didn't know me all that well.
There are a lot of people mourning Avery today all while trying to remember what a great guy he was. Heart break is the only way I know how to explain how I feel for Avery's Mama and Daddy. I hope that both of them can find some peace today and the days to come.
This evening, I will join his family for a balloon release in his Memory. Please keep the entire Carnell family in your prayers.
