    Oh Amanda and Tara, I am so sad to hear this news. Death comes to us all in different ways, at different times, and is never easy to bear. My best wishes and thoughts are with you both as you walk a lonelier road together.

    Dear Great Grandma Audrey,

    Thank you for always sharing your classic home, classic treats and games, always sharing pieces of your life story, for showing us The Scarecrow Festival (Invasion!), the local attractions and people of Meaford. I didn’t even know of The Town of Meaford until I knew you!

    You will be dearly missed by many, especially us and especially the many, many connections you’ve always had in the Meaford and surrounding community.

    You were only and always a lovely, classy, strong woman. Admirable.

    Lots of love…

    Renée (Daniel), Dahlia & Azalia
