Audra was a precious gift to us from God, given to us at Ft. Lewis, WA on Dec. 5, 1975. Throughout her life, she has been a constant source of great joy, thoughtfulness, and love. We spent many good times fishing at VA Beach and Outer Banks, camping at Catoctin Mt., and enjoying Busch Gardens. Her greatest achievement was as an amazing stay-at-home mother who raised three beautiful children, Cacia, Camille, and Jonathan. We are so thankful for the time we shared with Audra. For it is not the quantity, but the quality of time she gave us that made her so special. She will always be in our hearts. Love Mom and Dad.
