I got to know Audrey at FCM. What a beautiful lady, always looking so nice. She was always friendly and willing to chat with me. I also know that you guys, her Son & wife and her two sisters, was very faithful in visiting every week, which I'm sure Audrey appreciated. I am sorry that this Covid 19 came along and made Audrey's end of life harder for her and you guys as you could no longer visit. I've missed seeing her since I can't go out there either. She was a very special lady.
I am the lady who always had a hat on. You guys have my deepest sympathy.

Oh what a Blessing Audrey was. She welcomed us with heart and soul when we moved in to the Cove in Okeechobee...We shared many precious times together. She loved her family dearly and knew and loved the Lord sincerely. One day, Dear Audrey, there will be 'no more Goodbyes'....We will never forget you and will always be thankful for the Blessing you were...

I was able to visit Aunt Audrey a few times in Florida when I visited my snow bird folks there. Her house was always spotless, with her afternoon cookies ready to share ,and she always welcomed family visits!
Audrey loved her Lord. I got to spend a little more time with her when I moved Farmington for a few years, (which was about the time she entered the nursing home there.) She looked forward to visits, and we always talked abt God and how maybe He placed her there to share God with others living there. She was very concerned about getting dementia and prayed often that she would not "lose her mind." She probably had a better memory than me up until the last yr of her life, so the prayers definitely helped!!!
My best memory of a conversation with her was about a couple of nursing home staff who were not nice to her. She said, "But that's only 2 and what can they do?!"😉
My condolences to her family. May God comfort you and bless you with good memories to carry you on .❤️

Aunt Audrey was the eldest of the 9 siblings of the Doubet family although she was the tiniest and always looked her Sunday best! She must have liked to clean too I can remember my mom saying you could eat off her floors!
I happened to be lucky enough to see her the very day they stopped visitors from coming into the country manor. She was always happy to see me and my therapy dog Barkley! Hope heaven has lipstick..you may be able to borrow my mom's if you didn't bring your own!
I'm sure the heavenly reunion was divine!

I am sad. My Aunt took me to Sunday school as a child. She was happy to see me the few times I made it to Farmington. May she be with my Mom now.
