A beautiful flower has been picked from the garden of life. Plucked from our sight but not our hearts.
My dear Aunt Audrey was a beautiful and precious flower. She was so attractive to all who encountered her lovely presence.
She spent her early years during a time that most can only reflect on. A time when life styles were built on routines, schedules, standards and dedication. She was born in the era of great respect, courage, boundaries, vision and hardwork.
She always expressed impeccable housekeeping and personal care habits. She was always beautifully dressed. Aunt Audrey's strength, beauty, and social graces were expressed through her joy of conversation. When she spoke she always took the high road.
She adored her family, was a delight to others, and a blessing to me and Bob.
My dear Aunt Audrey - an absolute lovely "lady" will be missed and is now a precious angel.
I will always love you and cherish the precious moments we shared.
May Brenda and her caretakers be blessed for preserving her dignity and providing her with such remarkable care.
