    My regrets to the family and friends. Audrey & I shared many good memories over the years. She and I took many road trips together, especially trips to “Hot August Nights” in Reno. We both loved old cars and it was like stepping back in time. We often traveled to Hawaii, which we both loved. I will honor her memory by remembering our good times together. Rest in peace Audrey.

  3. Andre was a bright light to everyone and shared her great ideas and expertise willingly. In my book she was a classy Lady and will be missed by many

    It is still hard to come to terms with the passing of a lady who had so much energy and zest for life… much too soon to have her leave. We had many fun times together, and I will hold the memories close to my heart, and keep the secrets we all promised to keep! May you rest in peace Audrey, and may the sea turtles of Maui tickle your toes for eternity!
