Dear Tracy, Mike,and the family,

we are devastated with the loss. You fought so heard to save her life, going through many medical procedures, and as parents we know how difficult it was on you, since Sofia also had one surgery, even though it is nothing in comparison of what you went through. You were rewarded by having beautiful daughter with the great personality and sunny look. And she made a great impression in lives of all of us, and it''s a lesson of a courage and dare for us. We express our deepest sympathy and regrets about Audry''s lost life, she will be always in our hearts.

We are so sad and send hugs and prayers during this tragic time. We understand completely what you are feeling and dealing with. Your heart will be broken forever, but you eventually learn to live with it.
We would have been there, but had been told it was for immediate family only. Please don't think we didn't care because we do. No parents should have to do what you are doing.
God bless you all and maybe we will see you soon.

We are so heartbroken to learn of your sister Audrey's passing. I adored greeting her in the Kindergarten classroom when she would visit - her spirit and smile were so bright, eager, and full of love. Our deepest sympathies go out to you all in your time of grieving.
Much love,
