    To my wonderful Cozy friends and family. I always enjoyed being around Audrey. She was a fun loving spirit and used to come and see us play in the band. That was a long long time ago, back in the 60s and 70’s. I wish you many divine blessings as you travel on and continue your life, eternal. Much love to you and to your family. Ray boyd Sibley
