Audrey you will be missed. Audrey was the quintessential hostess because she LOVED people and loved to take care of them. She was always welcoming and always caring and asking about our lives. She could take someone who she and Gary hadnt seen in a while, and make them so comfortable by her welcoming and hospitality (an art truely lost these days), that those people would feel like cherished close friends.
We can all take a page out of that book. Thanks Audrey for your care and Gary and family, for sharing her with us.
