To Those I Love And Those Who Love Me…

When I am gone, release me, let me go.
I have so many things to see and do.
You mustn’t tie yourself to me with tears,
Be happy that we had so many years.

I gave you my love, you can only guess
How much you gave to me in happiness.
I thank you for the love you each  have shown,
But now it’s time I traveled on alone.

So grieve a while for me, if grieve you must.
Then let your grief be comforted by trust.
It’s only for a while that we must part,
So bless the memories within your heart.

I won’t be far away, for life goes on.
So if you need me, call and I will come,
Though you can’t see or touch me, I’ll be near.
And if you listen with your heart, you’ll hear
All of my love around you, soft and clear.

And then, when you must come this way alone,
I’ll greet you with a smile and “Welcome Home.”

Sue and family,
I cannot begin to tell you how much I adored your Mom!
She and Betty were like Mothers to me when I was a young,18 year old cadet, assigned to Central Records at the police department. I can still remember both of them laughing and carrying on when we would sit together on break at Henry’s in the City Hall.
Audrey was beautiful. She always dressed to the nines. I thought she looked like a movie star.
You never forget the people in your life that treat you well, I will never forget you, Audrey!
Blessings to you Sue and your family,
Woody Wright

Dear Susan & Family,
I wish I had words to let you know how much Aunt Audrey is loved and thought about often by me and My family. When Aunt Audrey and I had the opportunity to talk we would sometimes talk about grandpa and his childhood stories he had told me and we would laugh a lot. Aunt Audrey will forever be in my heart with my mom Alice.

I have known Audrey and Richard Dube for many years. When I played music all around the Lansing area she would come out and support me, they were both a great family friends. She was and always will be the sweetest and most caring woman I know. We have had many great moments, she even threw me a going away party when I moved to Tennessee. There is no soul in the world that can surpass our friendship and family love. Love and prayers for the family in this time of your loss. Ride high my friend. Say hi to Richard for us all.

I am so sorry for you and your family. Of course my memories are from way, way back in the day. I remember how close the two of you were! Your Mom had a wonderful personality and smile to match. And my brother, Tom, simply thought the world of her.

Sending much sympathy and love.

I did Audrey’s hair at Storypointe, we always enjoyed our 1940’s music and our coffee, her smile was worth a million words, I will miss her dearly. Denise Cook
