  • My dearest ♥ felt condolences. I am glad I took the trip last year to see her and for her to meet my Kim. I am sure Aunt Audrey enjoyed our short visit as much as we did. As it turned out, that was our last hurrah. Due to family commitments, I will not be able to attend the last farewell. But my heart is with you during this trying time. Love you all♥️
