    My thoughts and prayers are with Audreys’ family at this very sad time. Audrey and her family lived next to my family in Nanton when us children were all very young. Audrey and my mother became very close friends. The first time in years that I saw Audrey was when she made a bus trip to River Cree in Edmonton and my friend Lynn Johnson arranged for me to meet her and her daughter. What a wonderful visit we had reminiscing with her about her time in Nanton and her friendship with my mother. I will always cherish that visit and the memories of my mother she shared with me.
    Blessings to all the family
