My condolences to all the family on my Aunt Audrey's passing. I have many fond memories of her. When I did the stone work on the outside of the house, she introduced me to her homemade Stromboli. I had never had it before and have never had it since that was as good as hers. She will be missed.

Heaven has gained another angel. I had the pleasure of knowing Audrey through my working at Kinzua Country Auction. She was such a sweet and giving lady. She will be missed by all of us there. It will seem so strange to look out from my "perch" and not see her there anymore. I know Audrey #75 will be there in spirit.

I did variety of yard work for Audrey that she needed done over the summers of 2013 and 2014. It was nice working for her, and I was very appreciative of the work she was able to give me. She seemed like a real nice person. My condolences to all of her friends and family.

So very sad to hear of Aunt Audrey's passing. I still can remember when I was just a little kid my summertime visits with her - bingo, the pond down the street, gayle's wedding and her yearly christmas package to my mom - lots of memories.
Sending my deepest condolences to all my cousins and their families.
