To Audrey's Family:
You have my heartfelt sympathy in the passing of our Dear Audrey. May our Lord give you Peace & Comfort at this difficult time.
You are in my prayers & thoughts. I am unable to attend, but will be thinking of you now & in the coming days.
We shared many good times over the years; besides, our mothers were also good friends. Whenever I came to the C.C.
I'd go to visit Audrey. The last few times she was unable to speak, but I thought she could hear & understand.
She has gone to join her parents & Anita in Heaven above, where there's no pain or sickness. She has attained the reward!
In Christian Love, God's Peace to each of you, Mary Anne Storm, Lake Worth, FL
