Empire‘s writers sent their condolences via Twitter on December 10, 2016.

Audrey was 64-years-old when she passed away, reminding us to love the people that God gave us because he will need them back one day.  Life is too short therefore we must live every day to the fullest.

The amount of time we have left is a gift that we must cherish.  Do what matters now and stop dwelling on the past.  We often focus on the negative aspects of our lives, completely ignoring the positive things.

Audrey may be gone but we’ll never forget her.  Over the years she has used acting to connect with the world.  As an African American woman, she has inspired many.  We’ll continue to celebrate her life and her art will be here forever!
