My grandma and Mr. Auffrey were neighbors for many years. Every time I went to go visit her I would walk by his apartment and he'd be sitting at his kitchen table, making it a point to wave to me. Just a small jester yet it always made my day. He was so incredibly kind. Even after my grandma moved out I always thought about him. We're both very sorry for the family's loss.
