Bill and Audrey were our parents best friends in the world. Since our parents passing, its been difficult to keep up with Lamar, and unfortunately found out much to late about Audrey's passing. She was a wonderful lady, and along with Bill Sr, made a great extended family and friends. Our condolences to Bill Sr, Bill, Tina and Glenda. Pat and Lee will be waiting for Audrey !

So sorry for the loss of Audrey. She said at Dad's funeral how much we needed to organize a family reunion. Wish we had, now for sure.

Bill and Family, You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers at this time of the loss of your mother. Your mother was a part of our education in the Lamar schools as she was one of the ladies who cooked our good school lunches.
