Please accept our sympathy and love on the passing of Audrey. She and Bill were very special friends for a long time. We will never forget our many camping trips taken together, both near and far. Audrey was so much fun whether we were cooling our aching feet in a Colorado mountain stream, keeping warm around a campfire in Door County, or walking the beaches of Gulf Shores. We feel sure she and Bill are reliving those precious memories already.  Family was so important to her, and we will keep you all in our prayers.
