I knew Audrey when she was a faithful member of the Tuesday morning Goodwood Church of Christ Ladies Class. It was a pleasure to have her in class and I enjoyed getting to know this lovely lady. I am sorry that I didn't learn of her passing in time to attend her funeral and express my condolences to her family.
- With love, Lois Clark, Baton Rouge, LA

Diane,
Sorry for your loss, hang on to the memories as they can get you through future challenges. When I get lonely or frustrated, I think of my mother and try to recall what would she have done today. It usually makes me feel better and things seem to work out most the time. Linda and I will keep you in our prayers. May God watch over your family in these trying times.

Diane,
Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time. I certainly have fond memories of the times spent at your home... your mom was always gracious and understanding of our teenage behavior.

May you find comfort in the warm memories of your mother provide comfort as you face the days ahead,

Dearest Family,
Hoping that everyone here finds comfort in knowing there is a multitude of those grieving with you today for our loss of a very dear woman. And praying that everyone finds hope in knowing that for as many souls as there are grieving together today, still we are outnumbered by those rejoicing with her at her homecoming.

With much love in Christ,
Marian Givens, Danyel Swinehart, and Blake & Madison McHugh
