Mike and Linda BuusAudrey will be missed at Lake Royale Christian Ministries. It was always a joy to see her sitting by the window watching everyone come to the clubhouse, greeting everyone as they entered, and freely expressing how she loved all of us. People got her coffee, food, helped her to the table when service started, and helped her to her car after service. She always had a smile of gratitude on her face often accompanied by a squeeze of a hand. There were two old hymns she wanted us to sing for her, but her illness and Covid closing services prevented that from happening - feel bad about that. We will miss her as I know you will too, but she is in a better place where there is not illness or sadness.
Pastor Tom EldridgeThere are those in every congregation who look at the pastor as though the pastor can do no wrong. Audrey was one of those church members. She had a strong faith and a beautiful smile that revealed her triumph over all the challenges she faced through life. I will miss her encouragement. I take solace knowing Audrey has been welcomed into Heaven for all eternity. Thank you to the family for their care during the last years of her life. And thank you for taking her to where she wanted to be, next to her family, at home in Canada. With love from your family at Lake Royale Christian Ministries
Steve & Judy MuraSo sorry Sherry, Greg and families to hear of the loss of your mother. My thoughts are with you.
