I also have just read the story about Avery.She was such a gorgeous little girl,what a waste of such a beautiful young life.
It disgusts and also scares me to think that we share this planet with such evil people.
I have had depression for 8 years now,and yes, sometimes I have VERY low days,but I would never even dream of doing something as dispicable as that man did.Depression is a very poor excuse and that man deserves to rot in jail!

On a brighter note,what the King family have done in memory of their daughter is absolutely incredible,what a beautiful way to keep little Avery's memory alive.

I was meeting a friend today in Woodfin for the first time and came across this park. I myself have a 3 year old and found it remarkable how you have turned this into such a positive memory. I had no idea about little Avery and asked people who filled me in about all this. I admire your strength and want you to know it was little Avery who lead me to her park. Keep going an I'm sure little Avery is watching down.

For Avery's parents - Thank you so much! The joy and happiness that I see on my granddaughter's face each time she plays at the park is priceless. Thank you for turning a tragedy into something positive. Thank you again.

The King family is simply disgusting. A friend who works at UBS apparently knows them well - and the insight she passes along is disturbing. It is always the right wing religious nut jobs who live their lives in greed and self-centeredness!!! Perhaps they got what they deserved...
nobody deserves to lose a child you vile disgusting bigot
