We all spend our lives looking for happiness, peace, goodness and love. Audrey Hovorka had all these, because she knew the secret was to give all these things to all who cross your path first, and they would be returned 1,000 fold.

Her eyes and smile projected a pure heart of goodness and an aura of total peace and tranquility, despite many physical problems that few really knew about. She prayed intensely for life at the next level and all these traits gave off an aura that touched all who knew her.

I was fortunate enough to know her and every contact I made with her put me at total peace and cleared my mind to realize what life is all about. Few people can do this. We will miss you, but you have others at a higher level to inspire.
