"My dear soulmate - Another year has passed since you went to join our deceased family and your Savior.  Memories are still rampant.  We all have vivid thoughts of this day and still mourn our loss no matter how long it has been.  We respect why you were taken from us because God knew best and your health had been in jeopardy for quite some time and as a result He felt you had suffered long enough.  We miss you daily and cherish the memories and love you gave us  My love, Audrey"

"HAPPY 83RD BIRTHDAY MACK - I am missing you every day-this was your special day for celebration and we continue to dedicate this date to you. You left us three years ago- those memories still prevail, especially your old cliches you used on a daily basis.  Somehow the family can remember a different one that fits the occasion (and there were many and they still bring laughter). HAPPY BIRTHDAY DARLING AND SAD YOU ARE NOT HERE TO CELEBRATE. Love, Audrey"

"During the years when our children were young and we worked together for Dr. Russell, I so well remember how Mack would always poke fun at us regarding how much alike we were -- if Audrey was sewing a black cape with a gold satin lining so was I -- without any previous planning.  The time when Bob was away at summer camp; Audrey and the kids spent the night at our house -- big pajama party! I broke my finger playing volleyball that evening, and Audrey rushed me to the hospital.  What awesome memories;  all the years I knew Mack, he was always the gentleman who loved his wife and family first.  Thanks for the memories."

"My dear soul mate time slips away but thoughts and memories never do. At least, if God decided it was time for you, he allowed me to continue with the memories of our journey together, providing me with the courage to live each day.  It is very lonely without you and hardly a day goes by that you don't enter my mind. Miss you & love you, Audrey"

My only comfort is knowing that "The Three Amigos", (Dad, Aunt Net and Uncle Bob) are playing well below par golf on Heaven's finest golf courses."
