    Prayers for peace and healing to you Jim.
    I haven’t seen Audrey in about 4 years.(in the “St Mary’s “days… activity time, primarily)
    Audrey was a lovely soul, dealing with pain.
    She was tough, and dealt with things in her own way and time……

    Sorry to see this. I was her next door at the Garden and love the times I had with. A wonderful lady.

    Dear Aunt Audrey,

    I am so sad about your passing and that I did not have the opportunity to visit with you when I was home in October. I have so many fond memories of you, especially when we gathered for the holidays during my childhood. Your fudge was legendary! I especially loved to watch you and Uncle Jim dance together. It was so magical how you moved as one. I hope you are now dancing in heaven. You both will be in my heart forever.

    Love always, your niece, Pamela
