Thinking of my Dave on this day 5 years ago when he drifted away from us. Still missed and still loved and forever in my heart and memories. Remembering the smiles, the laughs, the hugs, the kisses, and the strength and wisdom he gave to me and his family. He was my rock and my soulmate, and I miss him so very much.

Too many sad memories today... I miss your laughter, your hugs, your voice... you left us too soon. Our family will never be the same without you. You are the missing link that tied us together as a family and you are in my thoughts and heart every single day and will be for the rest of my life.

Dave and Mary, Matt and Michelle, So many of the best memories in my life were with all of you. You were there for me when I really needed it and many of the times in between. You were as much my family as my own - and sometimes more. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. . Dave - what an awesome human being! He made an impression on me I'll never forget and will always cherish.. He had a genuine love of laughter,fun, family and friends that was contagious.. It was a joy just be in his presence at times. I learned so much from him over the years.- a love of the land, gardening, the outdoors, fishing, to tease, joke, to truly enjoy life - and to laugh in a way that can shake your body and soul. I miss you Dave. I miss all of you. Thank you! Love Billy. .

It is hard to believe that it has been 2 years since my BFF, David Avery, passed away. I have spent the last hour reading the tributes and looking at the photo album with both tears and laughter. I often think about how great it would be to go on just one more fishing trip and share one more meal with Dave & Mary. Dearest Mary, I hope and pray that God will give you peace as you continue to go through your grief. Your 'ole buddy, Bill

Hard to believe it's been 2 years. Grief quietens but never really goes away. RIP, David.

This little flower is for you my love.....remembering two years ago this day we were bringing you home for the very last time so that you would have the peace and quiet from doctors and hospitals....to be in the home you built....to be surrounded by those who loved you so very much and to say our thanks and goodbyes to you who enriched our lives.......we miss and love you still.
Posted by Mary Avery on 30th October 2013
Your birthday came and went and you were on my mind and in my heart as always..every day and every night I think of you and miss your smile...your hugs......your strength and encouragement....your love...not sure if I can do this without you......trying but it is very difficult and very lonely in my life without you.....

New Year's Eve 2012...thinking of the "might have been" and the "never will be" - missing you so very much and looking at another year without you....as you always said.."it is what it is." and so it is and so I will be..without you.

Dec.2012 - Christmas #2 without my Dave by my side. Many sweet memories of past Christmas holidays were on my mind. Each day, night, holiday - always in my heart with love....missing you so very much.

Drinking scotch (well sort of scotch) at Bruce's Bar and dancing all night. Laughing crazily. Picture of Dave in a dress. Drawing the last card with his eyes closed and hitting the Royal in Blackhawk. Cooking wildly when his body was starved. Memories go on forever. Betty and Gene

Posted by Leonore Tiefer on 2nd December 2012
My thoughts are with Mary and the rest of Dave's family on his yahrzeit. (Yiddish for memorial) Jews have a tradition I follow of lighting a 24-hour burning candle on the yahrzeit of a loved one. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yahrzeit_candle. Love and hugs, Leonore

Dad, I wish you here to share the experience, the wonder, the worry and the heartache of lost homes, wildlife and forest land due to the High Park Fire. The Poudre, The Buckhorn and Rist will be forever changed in the wake of this fire! It's a reminder of just how powerful mother nature can be. I will think of you throughout the lifetime of this wicked wonder of nature.
Posted by Michelle Avery on 18th June 2012
Missing you dad, yesterday was Father's Day and without you here.....well, it was just another day. I'm proud of mom....she's trying to go on as best she can and she's doing pretty well-just as you would want and expect her to. I miss you so very much and wished I had the chance, one again to hug you and kiss you and wish you a happy Father's Day. Dad, you are in my thoughts and prayers
Posted by Mary Avery on 17th June 2012
Thinking of you on this first "dad's" day without you here with us, & remembering many beautiful, fun memories of you and I with Shelly & Matt. I am so grateful for the time we had together with our two very special luvies. Thank you my love.
Posted by Michelle Avery on 3rd June 2012
Dad, I miss talking to you....I just want to talk to you. Nothing, no nothing will ever be the same without you. However, we are trying to adjust, trying very hard because we know you would want us to. No words can express how much I appreciate the time we had together.
Posted by Mary Avery on 27th May 2012
It's almost now six months since you left us & we are all still missing you so very much - still loving you, still thinking of you, & wanting you to be here with us again. Not a minute goes by in the day that you are not in our thoughts. We have beautiful memories, yes; but the thought that there will be no more memories to make with you & no more plans to make with you is unbearable.
Posted by Michelle Avery on 11th April 2012
Dad, its not the same without you......you were taken too soon from us; as the saying goes..."Only the good die young!"
Posted by Mary Avery on 7th April 2012
No one know the tears still inside me. People think it's all past. They think I'm better. Every once in a while I think, I hope, I pray that things will be better too. But then I remember & the pain floods back & the bottom falls out, and I fall & fall and I know again that things aren't better; you are gone & I cry alone. You are always in my heart and thoughts and I miss you.
Posted by Mary Avery on 18th March 2012
Loving you, missing you and wondering if this sadness, emptiness without you will ever go away.
Posted by Mary Avery on 25th February 2012
I am asking God everyday "Why did you have to leave us." So far, I have no answer.
Posted by Mary Avery on 18th February 2012
Thinking of you everyday, every night and holding you close to my heart. Missing your smile, your laughter, your hugs

I considered David my surrogate dad from the first time I met him. He and Mary both ALWAYS opened there hearts and home to myself and my son. We were always welcome at their holiday meals as we had no family of our own here. He was a warm , caring , highly intelligent man and will be missed by many...to this day Michelle I too say BIIIIIIIG WYOMING da de dah da daaaaah.
