Audrey became my aunt when I married Tom and I have considered myself very lucky to have had her in my life as an aunt in law. I will miss seeing that twinkle in her eye and the cute sometimes naughty things she would whisper in my ear! We all are better people for knowing her and feeling her love! Palmer and family - please know I have been thinking of you - hugs to you all.  Dorle
