    Walter, it is with deepest sympathy to hear of the passing of Audrey. I have fond memories of working on your tree farm in Kanata and how Audrey was sympathetic to us workers when we raided the cookie jar at lunchtime.

    You are in our thoughts and prayers.

  • Margaret Dawson says:

    Walter, Sincere sympathy on your loss. I know the path you have walked and while Audrey is at peace now, you will find the days long, but always cherish the memory of the good times you enjoyed together. I recall all the happy hours we spent together at Sandpointe and remember Audrey always preferred white wine. God bless you and keep you strong.

    I dont know if I ever met you… but Audrey was my godmother. I have such huge fond memories of her… I am not sure why.. but I decided to see if I could find her this week and was so sad when I came across this. Interestingly, my mom who was one of her best friends also passed away in 2012. I would love to connect if at all possible. Auntie Audrey was a giving loving amazing woman… and I am a better man because of her.
