    We will never forget Ava and Jim Mize. We met you all in Franklin and enjoyed so many good times together. Ava was such a dear and loving friend. Our memories will always be good ones. Eating out, driving to Hendersonville and so many other memories.

    Jim, our condolences to you. I know you will miss sweet Ava.
