Not sure what to say?

Audra was such a loving and kind step -mother, grandmother and person ! She made my Dad so very happy, and I know that he greeted her with open arms in Heaven. Her kind heart and loving hugs will be dearly missed . Rest in Peace Grandma Audra. May you rejoice in Heaven. We love you and will miss you.
