Philip and Liza von Awken
This lovely young couple came to us with quite a different story. We thought we might share it, because it’s just a fun read. These two lovebirds met in High School when they were both living in Castle Pines, Colorado. This is an exclusive area where only the wealthiest of people are fortunate enough to be able to afford a house. Liza lived with her grandmother after her mother had abandoned her. She couldn’t take the single mother life, it was too hard on her, and she knew that Liza’s grandmother was well off and willing to help her granddaughter.
Von Awken Real Estate
When they met, Philip was the youngest son of a very wealthy family. They owned Von Awken Real Estate and were the largest company of its kind in the neighbourhood. Or even in the area. So life was going well for these two love birds who fell in love at first site on the first day of High School. After they were dating for a couple of years, the financial crisis hit. Von Awken Real Estate was affected but could survive. At least, until the main accountant stole all of the company’s money and fled to the Cayman Islands. There was nothing left to do for the Von Awkens but to file for bankruptcy. They lost everything they had worked for their entire lives and had to start over from scratch. This also meant that they had to move to the bad side of town. Luckily, Liza’s grandmother let her favourite grandson in law live with them so he could finish the year at the same school.
Leaving High School
Soon enough the time approached for Philip and Liza to leave High School. They had both enrolled in colleges close to home, so they could stay together and take care of Liza’s grandmother, whose health was worsening. Unfortunately, before graduation, Liza’s grandmother passed away. She left the house and all of her belongings to Liza, who was heartbroken to lose the only real parent she felt like she had ever had. Philip helped her through it and encouraged her to go through her grandmother’ stuff. It was then when she found a scrapbook full of pictures from when her grandmother was about her age. On many of the pictures, she saw a turtle named Lucky. At least, according to the text next to it, that was his name. Right then and there she decided that she wanted to get a turtle called Lucky as well, to feel closer to her grandmother.
As Lucky would have it
Philip, supportive as ever, decided to clean out some rooms to make room for the new pet that Liza went out to buy. And as luck would have it, he found old Lucky’s terrarium. When Liza returned with the new Lucky this warmed her heart and she just knew that it had been a message from her grandmother. She vowed that she would take good care of Lucky and searched the web to learn what a turtle actually needs. Soon enough she came across our website and has been a customer ever since. Lucky is a very happy and healthy turtle that occasionally is allowed to join Liza and Philip on the trip to our store. Once here, we give him a check-up to see If he’s doing well. Other times they just order online. Because that is possible as well at Nutri Bac.
