In Loving Memory of Avra Marie Johnson Ramsay









Born: August 3, 1979



Earned her wings: April 4, 2001



Burial Site: Smackover, AR







Oh, my LOVE, Avra was born in Metairie, LA (suburb of New Orleans) on a very hot and humid day of August 3, 1979. She was one of one hundred babies born this day at this hospital. But, she was the prettiest! And, loudest! And, this she stayed forever!

Avra left us in her bed, on April 4, 2001 from “undetermined” causes in Fordyce Arkansas. (This is still our nightmare.) She gave us 21 years of complete and unconditional LOVE on this earth and taught so many of us the real truth of complete and unconditional LOVE that we might have never known. She is a sweet and lasting dream – come – true.


When I think of Avra, I think of: Grayden (her wonderful son she blessed us with. He’s 8 years now), green, sunflowers, loving, caring, clothes, loving sister to Annie, great Mommy, loving and loved by her family and was the “care taker” to all, friends and more friends, volleyball and cheerleading, love for animals, decorating, makeup and clothes, crawfish, drawing and painting, and many more thoughts.

It’s been 6 years now and we miss her dearly. We continue to love and cherish each and every moment we had with her and thank her for all she has given us to carry through this new life’s journey. Her memories and present thoughts are a beautiful reminder of God’s special gift to us, forever!
