I've had the honor of knowing Auburn since I was a little girl. He always was so kind hearted & generous. Then I took a part time job at Owen's Groc and got to know him as the most humble and sweetest man you'd ever have the pleasure of speaking to. Anytime I was having a bad day or feeling the pressure from the public he could calm me down in the blink of his eye. I have never heard anyone have one single bad word to say about him. Auburn was a true gentleman with a heart of gold. I know that he is in heaven rejoicing with all his loved ones. So until we see you again, you rest easy! Love you and will miss you so much. Your family will remain in my prayers.

Alburn, was my first cousin, and his dad and my mom were siblings. Alburn was one of a very special and loving family, when in my very young years I spent many great times with all of them. Alburn and the entire family were 'the real thing' and the salt of the earth.
I loved them all. Condolences to Ken and his family and all the others. Wish I could be there with you, but New Mexico is a long distance away. Blessings to all of you!

Everytime he seen kelsey from the time she was 6yrs old, he always asked me how she was doing with her seizures and was genuinely concerned. He was caring and very good person. RIP Auburn, until we meet again.
