To the Avery Family. I so remember your dad when I was a young girl. He would come to the gas station and sometimes bring some of the kids with him. He was such a good friend to my mom and dad. He would make them laugh and share some smiles with our family. May your family know that I am praying for you all. God Bless. Sheila Ponder Wilson > Ponder Brothers Service Station @Flat Creek .
