    I want to extend my sympathy to Audrey’s beloved family, she will truly be missed. I will miss , her faithfulness in attending First Free ….I have many good memories of the days she brought Christina, and being in the same Bible classes , etc. She was always friendly and kind. I thank God for her salvation and trust God’s promises will be of comfort for her family. She was a beautiful testimony of Gods love and grace. Blessed be the name of Audrey Strauss.
