Casserly cousins - I will be thinking of you all tomorrow morning while you gather to celebrate the life of Aunt Audrey. Wishing circumstances were different so that I could share this farewell with you. We've said lots of goodbyes over the years - many too soon, and some in their time. It's hard to believe that all of our parents generation are now gone, for me on both sides with Aunt Audrey's passing. Love to all, Pat
My thoughts and prayers and with you all during this difficult time. I was sad to hear about Audrey. I had not heard from her in some time and was wondering if she had been ill. She was a very special lady and a great friend to my parents, especially during those difficult times of my brother death and my moms illness. Your mom passed on the 25th anniversary of my moms passing. They are now together catching up on everything. I wish I could be there in person to give you all hugs. With much Love - Kathy Ennis
I am very sorry for your loss. I hope you can find comfort in your memories of Audrey and from others who remember her fondly. Psalms 147:3 says; "He is healing the broken hearted ones and is binding up their painful spots." God, as the hearer of prayer, will comfort you in the days ahead as you remember her.
Mama was a very special lady and touched countless lives through the Search program. She was a true servant to others. I will always have warm memories of Mama and Papa and the impact they had on my life. My condolences to the Casserly family. Jim Benson
