I never met my grandfather's second wife. I just learned in the year 2011 that my grandfather had 2 wife's.

I have been working on my family's genealogy, i have found 3 cousin's who knew Avis and they told me she was a wonderful woman. Avis would help anyone in need. She had a heart of gold. And Avis loved animals. <3

I wish i started working on family's history years ago, i would have loved to have met Avis.
