I worked with Avis at the nursing home (I am CNA) she is such a lovely lady! She just loved all her little "babies" (stuffed animals) her and my daughter would talk for hours about all of them! My daughter gave her 2 and she just thought the world of that! We are going to miss her sweet face around the nursing home! God Bless her and her family during this difficult time!
