Deepest sympathy to you all upon Uncle Avalon’s passing. I am sad that all the folklore of St. Philip’s that he could explain and recite will not be available to us whenever we need it. I am sad that the last of the four brothers has passed. We will, though, remember him with great fondness and respect, always.

So sorry to hear of Uncle Avalons passing ;God bless!

Had the honor of meeting Mr. Squires many many times. such a sweet man and his love for his garden . Thinking about you Ashley and family xo
