Godfrey family, we are so very sorry for the loss of Ms. Audrey. She was my parents next door neighbor for over 40 years on E. 39th Street. My sister Cindy, was the same age as Paulette and they went though school together for years. We have pictures of some of my family, made in our yard, that show Ms. Audrey's house under construction. She was a great neighbor all those years.
