Audrey was like a second mom to me growing up. She and my mom were best friends and our families usually were together for New Years Eve. I spent many happy days playing with Tom, especially at the farm. Audrey would wake us up at 5 AM and then drive us to a pond to go fishing. Great memories of a carefree time. Audrey was a sweet person with ready smile who always made you feel welcome. She will be missed by everyone who knew her.
