Such a wonderful lady. I'll never forget the first time I met her. I knew then and there that she would be a friend for life. She sometimes slipped and called me "Sheler" when her Aussie accent made an appearance. Sorry for the loss to the family and all of us that loved her.

My sincerest condolences goes out to your entire family. Audrey held a very special place in my heart. I only had a short time to get to know her. The time we spent together no other can tear apart all the memories I have of her. Every morning we had the same routine. I would come in and say I have your medicine. Her response would be, " I love you but not when you give me medicine". I would chuckle, and respond I love you too Audrey.

Audrey was especially dear to me and my husband. I admired the grace and dignity she had through all of the arthritic pain that she bore. She loved beauty and took care to portray it for all of us, right down to the finishing touch of lovely vintage earrings. She had a true strength of spirit. I'm glad for our shared conversations in Cameron Woods dining room and will treasure her memory. Our sincere sympathy and prayers for comfort for her family. She will be missed. In Christ's love,
Pastor Sam and Serena Hoffman
