I am one of Betty Eng's grandaughters. I can't tell you how many times I would pop in on Grandma and find her at Avis' having coffee or Avis would be at Grandmas.
In May 2010 my Mom (Pat Owen) was moved to hospice care as hard as a time that was,I am still so thankful that Grandma was able to visit Avis there too. It was amazing to see them together again,their faces were filled with such joy!
