I live across the street from Audrey and just loved hearing her talk about her life. She also loved to see my little dog, Ewok, when I would visit with her. She loved dogs. I’m really going to miss seeing Audrey every week. I already miss her but know she’s in God’s care and what a great place to be. Cammie Thomas

Audrey Stricker was my best friend for over 50 years. She and I laughed together, wept together, worked together and played together. She was a mentor and taught me so much about the ART of nursing care. She taught me the ART of gourmet cooking. Most of all the ART of living. I shall miss her. Paula Rodriguez
