ForeverMissed

Welcome to Audrey's Memorial Web Site.

With so many family members living in different states and in other countries, I thought it fitting to create this on-line memorial for mother.  I pray that this will give everyone a chance to share their memories, photos, and life stories with others who love Audrey.

Feel free to invite family and friends to this site, so they can share their memories. You can add your pictues, stories, or just leave a simple tribute. In doing this, we build better memories.

May the Lord richly bless all who visit this site and share in His love.

Douglas Sloan

A Memorial Service was held Saturday, Jan 7th 2012, 1PM at Capital Baptist Church in Salem, Oregon.  This was a small gathering of family and friends.

Mother's eulogy is now posted on the "Her Life" page of this site.

Sharon Sloan always talked about what a great Mother Audrey was and I knew her as being Sharon's mother. She was always open to us teenagers hanging around her house, eating food and watching t.v. and allowing us to be teenagers! She is missed by many. Love to the family! Nina

Year four - They say time heals all wounds. While this is true, the scars remain. It still hurts to know mom is gone. I miss her love and kindness more than ever. If more people were like her, the world would truly be a better place. With love always, Doug <>

It's been three years, and I miss mom more than ever! I thought this was supposed to get easier. Unfortunately, her absence still hurts.

I can’t thank you enough for all you’ve done for me….you loved me as your own blood, shared and protected me from harm…you were my grandma and mom put into one, and I proudly referred to you as such. I remember when I first came to stay with you; it was after high school. It was you, me and grandpa and we had a ball. After awhile, I went to college and you were so excited to help me wi

with my homework. I had to write a paper and needless to say, we collaboratively earned an undeserved grade! Since then, I was able to share my improved writing skills with you and hoped that you were proud, and met your approval. You had said to me “Hey, I remember when I knew more than you.” And at another time, you said that you were proud of me and no matter how hard I tried;

I never heard that from my own biological mom. I shared secrets, heartbreaks, and everything else with you. And our trips to Frey’s grocery store, took about four hours or more as we would discuss life, and etc., and only you and I know about those conversations.
I miss your advice, whether relative or not, you always had an opinion, and it was usually solid. With that said, I miss c

I miss calling and talking to you about the everyday instances and you living life vicariously through me. Plainly put, I miss you more than you will ever know, today, and every day, until we meet again.

Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free, 
I'm following the path God laid for me.
 I took his hand when I heard his call,
I turned my back and left it all.
I could not stay another day,
To laugh, to love, to work, to play.
 Tasks left undone must stay that way,
 I've found that peace at the end of the day.
If my parting has left a void,
 Then fill it with remembered joy.
 A friendship shared, a lau

If my parting has left a void,
 Then fill it with remembered joy.
 A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss, 
Ah, yes, these things too I will miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow,
 I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
 My Life's been full, I savored much,

Audrey was a wonderful person, mother and friend to many of us that knew Sharon in our early teen years. My love goes to you all that are missing her.

This is to the best mom a son could ever ask for! You taught me the true meaning of love and compassion and how to share that with others. I am eternally grateful for having you as my mother. I will miss you every day of my life.  Your son, Douglas.

Memories from Nina McCaslin-Horn

Shared by Robie Furlong on December 19, 2011

Sharon and I go way back to Jr. High days and some of my fondest memories were going to her house on Ellis Avenue, where Sloan’s Mom would always have a smile for us, food if we were hungry,  and make us feel right at home.  She allowed us to talk openly and candidly about boy’s and things that we might not have talked about in our own homes.  I just wish I could have listened more to her wisdom and humor…….some of us could use  her wisdom now!

But I can remember those thoughts and see her almost standing in the kitchen talking to us with interest and giving us undivided attention when we talked Like it was worth listening to.  She did seem to really understand us.

What I choose to remember about her, was her long beautiful dark hair, amazingly young skin and always dressed well!!! We all wanted to look just Her!  But more than this, she was a good Mother to one of my dearest friends, Sharon and she was always there for her, so I loved her.

Please give my heartfelt condolences to all the family and know that we will be in prayers for you while you miss her here on earth, but know that only God knew her heart.  Only God will be the one holding his hand out and welcoming her into Heaven’s Eternity, where hopefully we will all be there one day together!

Please give Sharon a big hug from me and tell her that I love her, too!

Much love, Nina
