Memories Timeline


  1. Audrey was one of the finest people in the world, in my opinion! She was quick to do her part in planning family reunions, putting together that perfect wedding or attending a friend or family member in need. Still, she always had time to cook the BEST meals in all of Louisiana, and truly enjoyed serving her family and friends. Her meals would make Chef Paul Prudhomme proud! She was probably the most talented cook in Louisiana…I know this because she taught ME to cook!!! Audrey was one of the finest granparents in the world as well! One could search the world over and never find another who loves her grandkids more than she did! (Eddie aint too shabby, either in the grandparenting department)!!! I know this, too because they are Maw Maw and Paw Paw to MY sons, Jay and Eric! I remember well how on any given day, the twinkle in her eyes would light up a room when she saw her grandsons!!! She was so proud of them! For her love and generosity, and Eddie's, I am eternally grateful! May God bless you, Dear Family in your time of loss. Look to Him and He will grant you the peace and courage that you need now. I'm praying for all of you. Remember, also that Audrey suffers no more…she has gone home to her Lord!!!Love, Roxanne

  2. I could not believe when I saw Ms. Addison in the obituary. Just last week I was looking for Sharon, and I looked up Ms. Audrey's phone number and was planning to call her. I am in shocked to read of this. My heart and prayers go out to the family. And to Sharon, I have been trying to contact you. Please contact me when you get a chance. May God be with you all through this sad time.

  3. I loved my dear grandmother. She will not soon be forgoten, in my heart, nor anyone else I know. She was in pain, she's no longer suffering. I was there when she took her last breath. She died gallantly, bravely, and most of all, peacefully. 3 I You Maw-Maw Addison!
