Hattie Mae, Connie, Terry & Rosa, We are so sorry we did not know about Aubrey’s death. We would have been there. Merritt is having some serious health problems so we stay in doctors’ offices more than anywhere else. He was such a fine, good person – the world has lost a fine man. With love and prayers – Betty & Merritt

Uncle Aubrey,

You are now resting in the arms of your Lord and Saviour whom you so faithfully served for so many years. I loved hearing you sing, teach and pray! Most of all you taught us by the way you lived your life each and every day.

I’m sure the Lord greeted you with the words, “Well done my good and faithful servant.” You were so fun-loving and always had a twinkle in your eye for us kids (young and old). I loved sitting on the front porch with you watching the birds and hearing you tell us stories. You always made us smile.

You will never be forgotten and always in our hearts.

Rest in peace dearest Uncle.

Your loving niece,

Marlene Myers

Terry, Rosa and all the family. Aubrey was a wonderful man – I remember working with him years ago. Never a hash word – always smiles. I am so sorry to hear of his passing. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family. I remember visiting his home when I would go see Rosa.
