"Aunt Audrey" Audrey, you were the whole package. One of the kindest, caring, honest, compassionate, fun loving people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing and being accepted by. I will miss the card games, I enjoyed watching, but I am sure that You, Marlene and Marty will pick up where you left off if you can find a fourth. May you rest in Eternal Peace and May Perpetual Light shine upon you. May God be with "Uncle Peter" and all of your family and friends. You will be sorely missed and forever loved.
