So sorry to hear about aunt Audrey. It's been many years since I have seen her but I always remember her as a kind and caring person. She was much loved and will be greatly missed.

So sorry, I referred to Audrey as my aunt. She was, of course, my cousin. I was the ring bearer at her and E.J.'s wedding.
