Aunt Audrey was the most wonderful person I knew. I always wished for a mother like her. I loved when we visited. She provided the gentleness I always wished for. She was a great cook. I loved visiting and playing in the park across from her house. She provided wax paper for the big slide. We would have a great time. Loved the family reunions. Wonderful memories of a great Aunt.
