  1. So sorry for your loss. My prayers and thoughts are with you.

  2. The entire Wisner family mourns the passing of Audrey Rapp. There were no better neighbors than Audrey& Bennie Rapp. When we moved to Petersburg, the entire Rapp family became part of the Wisner family and vice versa. Audrey & Bennie became the third set of grandparents to the Wisner girls. It soon became evident that if you were a friend of the Rapp family, you were a friend of the Wisner family–and vice versa.
    Audrey & Bennie were a perfect pair. Their personal strengths complimented each other. We know we are better people for having known Audrey & Bennie Rapp.
