Audrey was a wonderful, caring person. Before my own mother passed away, Audrey would call regularly to talk. She would remember my mother with a card and personal note on holidays and special occasions. My mother always spoke warmly of Audrey and her late husband. I am closest with Audrey’s brother, Jimmy Roberson, who I have know since childhood and who I recognize in some of the family photos. Jimmy resides in California and was married to my counsin, Lola, before Lola passed away. Without a doubt, Audrey and Jimmy both are of the same caring breed and in every way are kindred spirits. Audrey will be missed by all she touched.

Mrs. Edwards you were always a kind and special person. When I would see you on birthdays or other gatherings you were always so sweet and loving. Alaynnah really got attached to you those final months and today she even says she’s going with grandma to take of you and visit. I tell Alaynnah that you are now a precious angel that is watching upon her. We love you very much and truly miss you!!!!!!!!

P.S. When I get there Mrs. Edwards please have some of those mouth watering deviled eggs for me!!Ha/Ha – Love Summer

Some people in this life never get to meet that special someone they will cherish forever.Not only was I lucky enough to meet you ,you were my mother-in-law for 38 years.We had so many wonderful times together and I’ll keep them in my heart and mind forever.We have laughed,cried,and shared so many memeories together and for that I’m so grateful.I was so honored to be able to care for you and love you at the end of your life and I would do it again and again if need be.We had so much fun together these last two months and I’ll cherish them always.I’ll miss walking in the door and hearing you say”whats lucy up to today”.You loved watching I Love Lucy while we ate breakfast together.You laughed and laughed at her.It brought me so much joy.I was so thankful to God to get you home to North Carolina to see your homeplace one last time.I saw the love and joy in your face and I’ll never forget you saying over and over I’m Home.You raised a beautiful son who would have done anything he could to protect you and he did right till the end.He will miss you so much but he will be ok coz he knows you are with God and your family you missed so much.Your son is loving and caring and kind and a family man just like you raised him to be.Your beauty shines thru him.What a legacy to leave.You were an angel on earth and now in heaven.We will all miss you so much but what a joy fills our hearts to know we were lucky enough to have you all these years.I’m so honored to have been part of your life and you a part of mine.Till we meet again.Love you forever and ever and then some.

Very sorry to read of the passing of Mrs. Edwards. I know she was loved very much by her family. I have many memories of being at gatherings where she and Mr. Edwards were present. As I remember her she was a good wife and loving mother and grandmother.

Altho’ I could not see her in her final years I know she was well cared for and made to know that she was indeed loved.

My prayers are with all of you.

Well Aunt Audrey, you finally did it, you made it HOME! What a happy time you must be having with all those precious loved ones that have been waiting for you. How lucky I was to call you Aunt. My dad loved you so very much and loved your daily visits on the phone. These past few months were so very special. Visiting with you, talking with you and sharing so many memories of the good days you had in NC and the special memories you were able to share with all of us. I know you appreciated all the TLC you got at Steve and Debbie’s and I know how happy they were when you asked to stay with them while you were ill. All the love and attention you got there made it easier to deal with you not being up to snuff for awhile. The thing I will remember most is seeing you smile and laugh again, something I hadn’t seen in quite awhile. You left us all with a hard job to live up to your kind,loving,caring and forgiving ways. I once read, “life given to us by nature is short, but the memory of a life well spent is ETERNAL!” You will always live in our hearts. Thanks for the memories

Love

your neice Brenda

What a blessing to have a Mother, Grandmother, & Great-Grandmother like you. You always loved us with unconditional love – God’s love, & were the “Virtuous Woman” God described in the Bible. We were always close, but got closer after Daddy died. Melissa, Jonathan & I always enjoyed spending time with you & after your accident, taking care of you. Whether it was going to the bank, the grocery store or the doctors it was ALWAYS a pleasure. You were NEVER a burden – only a joy & a blessing. We loved it when you would spend the night with us, especially on Christmas Eve & wake up together & open our presents. We also enjoyed taking you out to eat,to NC,taking you for walks,playing catch with Jonathan, sitting in the backyard on the swing we got you, or just sitting & talking & listening to you & all your stories about growing up. It was hard to see your health fail, especially this last year. But as I told you & everyone else, you weren’t a “baby” – you were MY baby, & as long as I/we could we made sure you & your needs were taken care of & you were content, because then & only then could we be content. We wanted you to come live with us, but you wanted to stay in your home, & we did everything possible to make that happen. We will always miss you dearly, but know you are where you belong, in Heaven with Daddy & others you loved. We look forward to the day when we will all be together again!!

You were a lovely person and I’m glad we met.Your daughter-in-law Debbie and son Steve took such good care of you and loved you so much.You told me so many times how they spoiled you and made you feel so good.Debbie did everything she could to make sure you got home to Carolina where your heart was for years.I’ve never seen two more devoted people in my life.They treasured every moment with you and you with them.I’m so glad for the visits I had with you.You made me laugh many times and told me you wished you had gone to live with them sooner.They miss you so much but they know you had to go.You had heaven waiting for you and who could turn that down.May you be dancing with the angels and enjoying your family that you missed so much there.I’ll look after Debbie and Steve.

LOve you J
