MY THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS ARE WITH YOU IN THIS TIME OF SORROW. HE WAS A GREAT NEIGHBOR FOR 12 YEARS. HE WILL SURELY BE MISSED
~ BARBARA COX, NEWPORT NEWS, Virginia
Please accept my sincere condolences. My two brothers and I grew up with Danny as we knew him as young boys. We spent many days together on the James River hanging out at Red's Pier. I also worked with him for many years. He was always up beat and fun to be around. He truly will be missed.
I have many great memories of hunting with Avery and my dad. He was a funny but tough guy and always had us laughing like crazy with his sense of humor and his antics. I will look back on those times and smile when I think of Avery Thomas. Rest in peace, friend.
~ Don Costello, Glen Allen, Virginia
My sympathy goes out to the family. I served with this Marine during the 60's. May God comfort his family during this stressful time.

Amazing grace! (how sweet
That sav'd a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.
'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
And grace my fears reliev'd;
How precious did that grace appear,
The hour I first believ'd!
Thro' many dangers, toils and snares,
I have already come;
'Tis grace has brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.
The Lord has promis'd good to me,
His word my hope secures;
He will my shield and portion be,
As long as life endures.
Yes, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease;
I shall possess, within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.
The earth shall soon dissolve like snow,
The sun forbear to shine;
But God, who call'd me here below,
Will be forever mine.
