Because of distance, many TFC staff people could not be there, so several letters were read during the celebration of her life.
In his letter, Scott, TFC President and CEO said, it is difficult to think of Audrey without Murray as they were a team when developing ministry to the truckers in Russia and Africa. That was reiterated several more times as selected people shared memories of Audrey’s life.
There were three letters “From Russia With Love” – all mentioning Audrey’s great skill in making them feel loved. Left to right: Luba and Chaplain Vladimir, Chaplain Alexander and Tanya, and Chaplain Peter.
It was wonderful to meet Murray and Audrey’s family and friends as well as Canadian TFC friends, staff, and board members that we hadn’t seen for a while.
We went back to our motel room where I blogged and Cerwin read my book “40 Chances” by Howard Buffet.
Because we didn’t feel like venturing out in the snow, it didn’t seem thoughtful to make a restaurant deliveryman risk the roads to please us, so we ate some things we had in the room – banana, orange juice, decaf coffee, and got a few things from the motel snack machine. 🙂
I was glad the new Sound of Music was on TV. That occupied most of my evening while I worked on the easy background stitching of my counted cross stitch piece. Cerwin isn’t as thrilled about Sound of Music, so checked out my blog and our friends’ Facebook pages.
We went to sleep hoping that the roads would be clear by morning so we could head home.
