Audrey was full of life even to the end. Such a beautiful person all around.
I'm so sorry about Audrey's passing!! We were high-school friends and next door neighbors. I have many fond memories of the times we spent together. Sending condolences to the family...so so sorry!!!
It was such a pleasure playing music in the band at Anshe Emeth with Audrey. She was such a nice lady, with such a tender spirit. I'm really glad I had the chance to know her, and I will miss her. My deepest condolences to all of you in her family. Mark Szachara
