This special space is dedicated to our Beloved Audrey Mae James Clark. She was the last living offspring of Paul James Sr. and Azelia Bellard James. She elevated our lives in the capacity of a wonderful mother, grandmother, great-grandmother or Aunt and we were so blessed to have been embraced by her love, wisdom, and zest for life.

That enjoyment extended to the most recent member of the family, her great-grandson, Jhase MacAfee.

The family predominately resides in Houston while Ebony and Christopher Martin reside in Las Vegas, Nevada.

 

We had a wonderful time honoring Aunt Audrey at the Meet and Greet Reception, during our 2018 Family Reunion.

Enjoy one of Aunt Audrey's favorite songs - 
Dear Mama - Tupac
