    Dorothy, Ray and Pat;
    I am so sorry to hear of your loss. When I think of Aubrey, I see a face that lights up the room. I always felt his warm, loving heart come through his smile. And his laugh was genuine, big and often. I know you will cherish all of your days together and your memories of Aubrey. He was well loved and will be truly missed.
