I'm so sorry for the loss of your dear mother. I loved her as my shorthand teacher and she made me a better secretary for it. She always had a loving way about her. She is a wonderful woman and has affected alot of lives. She taught with love. May the Lord bless you and your family with comfort at this time.

I'm saddened to hear that Audra has left mortality, and is out of our view. Our loved ones move on to their reward and leave us here in mortality. Missing them can be heart breaking.
Audra was one of my teachers, and I credit her for giving me the confidence and knowledge to tackle shorthand so well. I used it, and other clerical skills, to provide a living for my family. Thanks to her being an awesome teacher I can still read, write, and transcribe it. Here its been 50 years ago, and it was Christmas 2015 that I typed the life history of a man's deceased wife that she had written in shorthand.
He was ever so grateful, along with his children.
I will always remember her sweet smile and firm but kind way she interacted with us students.
I want you to know, that I know first hand, that she is in the most beautiful, peaceful and loving realm, surrounded by all who love and care about her. God bless you and yours.

I'm so sorry about the passing of your Mom. She was my shorthand teacher in high school as well as my Mom's first cousin. She was such a genuine and sweet lady. Her example and service made the world a better place. She will be missed. To honor her I am having a tree planted in her name in a National Forest. I wish I could be there in person. Sending love and prayers to all of you.

Dear Bro.Koplin,
Kirk and I love you and your dear wife Audra so very much. I so loved coming to visit long after I was no longer her VT. It was a blessing to get to know you both. I wish I could bring over some chocolate cake with chocolate icing, for the good times. We sorrow with you and your family. May God bless you always Bro Koplin.

Dear Koplin Family,
So sorry for the loss of Audra. I was one of her students. My family and yours were also friends, as at one time your family lived across the street from my family on Dove Ave.
May you find comfort in the knowledge you have.
