Audy was a kind man, of good character that was quick with a smile and loved by many. On May 30, 1946 Wanda's cousin, Cecil Lee and a friend of his Audy, had just gotten out of the navy. Wanda and Cecil were standing in the front yard of Aunt Elsie's two-story house. Wanda said to Cecil "I thought you were going to bring a sailor home for me?" Cecil said, "I did! He's upstairs." She looked up and saw a window open and was embarrassed because she knew then that he had heard what she said. He came downstairs and out into the front yard. Cecil introduced them and they have been together ever since. He married his wife, Wanda Lee on July 20, 1947. They were married 65 years and 11 months. His parents Otto Amos and LouRena Myrick Dickson, and 2 brothers & 3 sisters preceded him in death.
