    My thoughts are with you all. Trudy was so much fun and always the sweetest… even when we probably deserved to be yelled at. 🙂 Rest in peace Trudy. Lots of Love to you all.

    Trudy you still had that sparkle in your eyes. You were the Sister I never had. Many good memories, so glad you were apart of my life. Trudy will live on forever, who are loved in memory .She was so ready to join Ken, the light of her life.

    A person’s true wealth is the good he or she does in this world . . . Trudy was one of the wealthiest one knew. Her wonder sense of humor, goes without saying g. She was my brothers Guardian Angel, such love between the two of them was a beautiful thing. I hold a lot of good memories of Trudy, the morning coffee, rides to the store or just hanging out at home. I find a great peace in the thought of what her daughter told me . . Trudy is with Kenny now. I love that. She still will be missed.
