Aubrey was a great person..she aways had a smile on her face when she come see me out in the hallway of Drury.
I know of the life she had growing up and she really struggled with her mom taking sick at young age...Aubrey made me proud of her in more ways than one...I'm saddened about the passing of Aubrey...To the Kolis family I'm so so sorry for your loss...keep those memories going of her I know I will and will smile every time I think of her...Many thoughts and prayers to you all..????
