I"m so sorry to learn of Audrey's passing. She was a friend of my mom's from Virginia Beach when they were young and it was a few years ago that Audrey reached out to me sharing a few memories from her time with my mom. I was able to share those memories at my mom's funeral. Interestingly enough, Audrey reached out to me the day I was departing for my mom's funeral so the timing was perfect (in God's perfect timing). Thank you for sharing those memories and again, I'm sorry for your loss. In my brief time speaking with her on the phone I wish I had gotten to know her years ago. Kindest, Ed Rusk (son of Joyce Lee Rusk)

Im so sorry to hear of Aunt Audreys passing. I have many fond memories of her and enjoyed all the visits I had with her and the whole family. One of my favorites from my childhood was going to work with her at the college. I just thought it was such a neat experience.
