Audrey was a kind and loving person. Your Dad and Mom were so special. When Jane and I would visit them in Winchester, they were always very welcoming . They were both so kind and generous, a true inspiration to any family. They will both be dearly missed. Our prayers are with you and your family. Love Jane and Stan McLeod
