My sincerest sympathy to everyone on the passing Audrey Raber. Audrey will be missed for sure by all. My prayers that each and everyday your sadness subsides as Audrey would not want anyone to be sad as she would like smiles and happiness always. Hold all your time together and your plentiful memories close to your heart as you will gain peace and comfort each day. Audrey is no longer visible for everyone but she is still here with everyone shining down in the sunshine beaming brightness. I am so glad that our paths met when we worked together in the Allentown office for Department of Labor & Industry as she was such a blessing to myself in every way shape and form. She taught me so much working with her and I am still using here training daily. Audrey was such a good coworker and will be missed. I know we haven't spoken to each other for such a long time but she was never lost as I still thought of her even though our paths no longer crossed. God has a new Angel in his realm and she is now reunited with her families gone before her. May God give you all peace and comfort Always and Forever. God Bless everyone.

Steve, Donna, and John, Don and I were so sad to hear Aunt Audrey passed. I always enjoyed spending time with her when she visited Emily. She had a laugh that could make the whole room join in. It was a blessing to have known her.

It was my joy and pleasure to work with Audrey at the Dept. Of Labor. She taught me more about working in the office than anyone else I know. And then after learning we lived fairly close we started going to work together. She found great pleasure in reliving the entire day in our one hour ride home. There was only one Audrey and she will be missed.
