I am so sorry for the loss of Audrey . . . I will miss her smiling face and love of life. She reminded me of Granny so much every time I saw her. I will never forget being one of her and Bob's two flower girls at their wedding and being the one who thought it was easier to sit on the altar step during the ceremony as my mother told me! I always loved going to the farm she and Bob ran. I can still remember driving into the drive way and there were so many of you there . . . a very long time ago as I am 73 now!!!! May she rest in peace and in Bob's arms in Heaven. May all of you have fond memories of her for the rest of your lives as I do. Love . . . her first cousin Barbara Gardner Ebeling
