Roland and family,
Audrey was such a beautiful woman with such a kind heart. She was a caring and loving roommate to my mother, Evelyn. I enjoyed my visits with my mother and Audrey and the meals we spent with the other ladies as well as you Roland. She was truly blessed with a devoted and loving husband and children. Prayers for you all. She will be missed.
Love, Michele LeBrun

Having seen you so often at Harris Hill as I visited with Emily has given me an insight into the depth of your love for Audrey. Emily shed a tear tonight when she told me of your loss and how she will miss her friend.
My thoughts are with you and your family.
