Send Condolence

Holly, I am sorry to hear about your mother. I remember her from our days in Linden school and when I would come over your house on Wilkens Ave. I felt welcomed there by her. She was an elegant lady in all aspects and she will be missed by all who were close to her. Please accept my sympathy. Alan

I only knew her from watching her on Mr.Roger\'s Neighborhood. Her character on the show stood out. A little different,but,attention getting. She blended in well with the other characters.Please accept my and my families deepest condolences. In heaven, there will hopefully be a Mr.Rogers Neighborhood too.

I am sorry about your loss. Death is always difficult to deal with, no matter the circumstances. Even though I did not know Audrey, I try my best to encourage the bereaved with a comforting thought from God's word the bible. Notice this encouraging reminder in the bible book of Psalm 36, and verse 9. It reads, "With you is the source of life. By your light we can see light." God is the giver of life. And the same power he used to give us life, he will soon use to restore the life of those in his memory. This is a sure hope that we can have confidence in. I hope this brief thought from God's word the bible provides some comfort. More information can be found at
