I just read obit about my very dear friend Audrey Austin. I live in Ky now. I met Audrey at the beauty shop by post office. I did her hair there and after I left the shop, I went to her home for many years to do her hair and made many dresses for her. I continued to make dresses while in ky. and had many special phone calls. She was very dear to me. I will miss her dearly. I send my love and prayers to all of the family. I am sorry I didnt know until now.
Audreys dear friend,
Rick and Eddie and families We are so sorry to hear of your Mothers passing.
