Dear Dennis, Janine and Charlene.....I am so sorry to hear of your sad news in the loss of someone so special. It has been years since I worked with Audrey & will always have such fond memories of our relationship. It seems that I can still hear her voice, along with Del's from their side by side work stations .... be it muttering out loud, laughing, cursing.....it was all great! And our coffee breaks with the gang where we all shared our common interests .....recipes, TV shows, the latest fashions.... always so much to chat about, but mostly the love of our families, and that of Audrey's dear grandsons. She was always so eager to be with them & enjoy her "Hockey Night in Canada". Always hold on to your wonderful memories! Most sincerely, Chris Carpenter - Posted by: Chris Carpenter (Friend and co-worker, Agriculture Canada) on: Jan 05, 2020

I was so sorry to hear of Audrey’s passing today. I remember spending a lot of good times with her at her mum’s house on Jamison and, although she was 4 years older, she always spent time with me on our numerous visits. Please accept my condolences.
