To the Family of Audrey,

I would like to extend to you my most heartfelt sympathy in the loss of dear Audrey.  Audrey was a most remarkable person, and she made a great impact in the lives the students, as well as the employees here at IPFW.  She touched my life personally, and I will never forget how she always looked so beautiful she was such a "girley girl" and she would say to me "Hi Ms. Danita" with that beautiful smile.  She was the epitome of faith and courage, and she will be greatly missed.   It is my prayer that the love of God will cover you as a blanket and comfort you as only He can, and that you will know that He will never leave or forsake you, and remember. . . "To be absent from the Body is to be Present with the Lord"  May the Lord bless and keep you!   Danita

To the Burkley and Moore familes:

Please accept my deepest condolences on the loss of your wife, mother, daughter and sister.  Audrey was a special person to all who had the good fortune to konw her.  She will be sorely missed.

My thoughts are with you and my sincere prayer is that your faith offers you comfort during this sad time.

When I read about Audrey and looked sadly at her picture, I knew Audrey was my daughters age and immediately felt a need to write.  Audrey,  a wife and mother and then thought of the 20 children lost the day before.  In my heart I know God has placed Audrey with the children to comfort each other till their loved ones meet again.  
Blessings to you, her loved ones at this time of grief with love from the campus of Defiance College.  Cindy Shong

May memories of special times comfort you all during these difficult days.  I remembered this morning, Audrey sharing with me your trip to Chicago to watch a baseball game.  She was so excited to spend that weekend together, although her time was becoming limited she really wanted to cherrish every moment and create fond moments for Dane and Mallory.   I have been reflecting on her courage as she battled this disease.  She was a fighter to the end and an inspiration to all that have had the opportuinty to know her.  I pray the love of God enfolds you and your family during these challenging days ahead and that he helps you heal with the passage of time. Audrey I am sure will keep in line to do so.  She was very much the taskmaster with her lists.  Please know you and your family will always be in my prayers.
