To Audrey's family: My husband Lacy and I have been part of Audrey's church family for forty years. She was always at church events even when it was difficult for her in later years. Her faith, conviction, and devotion to God and her church were an example for all to emulate. Her presence was important to all of us and she will be sorely missed, but never ever forgotten. Those big, beautiful eyes of hers are shining in His presence now and her kindness to all will always be remembered. God blessed Salem by giving us Audrey and Lurty for so many wonderful years.

I will long remember Ms. Audrey's sparkling blue eyes, cute smile & wonderful sense of humor! I don't believe I have ever fallen in love with a person so quickly! I met Audrey about 3 years ago when I was privileged to become one of her companions and caretakers. I last saw her about a week or so ago. During our first year together we traveled most of the backroads in Augusta & Rockingham Counties while Audrey showed me all the shortcuts, told me where everyone lived & shared some history. She was always an example of her profound faith in God & often gave me instruction for life's confounding problems! I enjoyed spending time with her every time I was with her! I will miss her so very much & extend my sincere condolences to all who feel this enormous loss!
