Our thoughts are with you during this time. Trudy was an interesting soul with a lot of life. She gave what she could and did what she could while she was among us. I enjoyed the phone calls and visits we had. She faced many challenges in her long life and greeted each day with strength and determination. She will be remembered. Love from us all Ann, Cecelia, Aaron, Adam, Alyson and Nathan. Safe travels.
