Audrey had many pleasures of life. She especially loved dancing, singing, whistling, camping, gardening, learning the computer and doing jigsaw puzzles but, most of all, the pleasure of her family.
Her family would like to thank KBRH nurses and staff. Dr. Purcell, Dr. Jacobsen and BC ambulance services. The support of friends and family through this difficult time.

“Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free!
I follow the plan God laid for me.
I saw His face, I heard His call
I took His hand and left it all…..
I could not stay another day,
To love, to laugh to work or play:
Tasks left undone must stay that way.
And if my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss…
My life`s been full, I`ve savoured much:
Good times, good Friends, a loved-ones touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief.
Be not burdened with tears of sorrow,
Enjoy the sunshine of the morrow.
