  • God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be, So He put His arms around you and whispered “come to me.” With tearful eyes we watched you, and saw you pass away. Although we loved you dearly, we could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating, hardworking hands at rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us, he only takes the best. Please accept my heartfelt sympathy on the passing of Audrey. May the comfort of God help you during this difficult time.

  • I was fortunate to be on the Cross-Country and Track teams with Joe at Norwalk High School: Living nearby, I would often visit the Reda household after practice and experienced the kindness and generosity Mrs. Reda many, many times. My condolences to Joe and the family on the loss of Audrey and difficulties of her long struggle. Drew
