We laid to rest one of my favorite people this weekend
Our first photo together
50 Year Celebration
With Dan. He adopted her and the feeling was mutual.
Her reaction to taking a “selfie” with me
She loved the boys well
They loved her back
Got to snag this. It reminds me of the way she loved with open hands.
Also snagged this. Reminds me of her sass.
Spring Wreath Making
Got to take home some flowers from her funeral.
Decided to spread them out among vases and friends
Just like her life. Multiplied in love.
Audrey was smart and sassy, servant-hearted and sensible. From what I hear, she made being a pastor’s wife look like a joy and supported her husband through a career transition in their 50’s. She cared for her aging father-in-law and her great-granddaughter in their home with equal love. She raised two ornery boys and mothered a handful of nieces and nephews. She made trips to Tulsa a delight and always made sure we were in church every Sunday we were together.
But the thing I love most is her heart for God and people. She wasn’t overly preachy, but she knew her Bible. And she loved with an openness and peace I will never forget.
I will love her forever and always be grateful she was my Grandma.
