Audrey - one of my favorite people in high school - Miss Ferreira's Latin class with Audrey was about as good as it gets. It seems like it was only a few years ago.

Audrey, We have been friends since grammar school. Even though this last few years we lost contact. You will always be remembered as a close and loving friend. Make sure you say Hi to Mom for me and give her a kiss. You will always be in my heart. Remember all the fun at Al's. Janie

So many memories....our crazy escapades, 5 or 6 of us piled into Audrey's car, driving around the city, blasting The Rolling Stones; church dances, eating at Raffa's. RIP, Aud. Much love.

Audrey! My birthday twin and last name twin - I loved you. My dad and mom always joked with you at Thad's and ALWAYS requested you to be our waitress whenever we went there to celebrate one thing or another...and how about all those I.C. choir rehearsals we had at the times. We always had fun at Anita's house in the pool. Audrey, you will be missed. So sad to see you go. Terri Cabral
