I am so sorry to hear of your loss of Audrey. I know my mother is going to miss her good friend dearly. She so loved to take her for walks around Marshall Gowland Manor. Every time I went to see mom they were together. I am so thankful they were roomies. May your family have peace and comfort as you share your memories in the days ahead.
