“I was very sorry to recently read of your loss of Audrey. She was one of my mother's favorite people and Rosemary always kept me up-to-date with Audrey's life. I recall our giggling in vacation bible school as kids and many pleasant chats along life's way. I think she was perfect at her work in home health care - pleasant, patient, kind, and hard-working. Audrey's passing is a true loss to the community. ”
