My sincerest sympathy to Audrey’s family. She was a lovely lady and a good friend for years. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
Dear Fritz and family of beloved Audrey: my sympathies to all of you on Audrey’s passing. I’ve been a member of Unity since the 1990’s and loved to talk with Audrey and Sam during that time. They both were such wonderful members and so inspirational. In these later years I admired Audrey’s cheerfulness and her love of Unity. I missed her at church but knew she was well loved and cared for no matter where she was. Unity is so much stronger for her dedication. God bless all of you.
