My condolences to all of Aunt Audrey’s family. She told me she found life without Uncle Paul hard and so there is comforting in knowing she is with him again.

Grandma! Words cannot express how you will be missed. I was blessed with spending so much time with you when I was younger and you taught me so much! I only hope I can carry on what you taught me to my kids and grandkids. You were a remarkable woman and very loved! I will celebrate and honor you for the rest of my life.
