Remembering Audrey in her younger years when I would stop at her parents farm house on the way to Kotz school. Audreys mother & father always had us kids come in their house on cold winter days to warm up & sometimes have a bite to eat before proceeding on to school. Audrey always had a smile on her face. She will be missed.
