Trudy was our neighbor and was always a source of smiles. The one, enduring memory we'll always have of her is her girlish excitement during the 2017 solar eclipse, when she stood outside with us, her husband Lenny and her son, Dan, marveling at the way the leaves of trees, and the holes in our colander, were blanketing the ground in wondrous little half-moon patterns. Trudy's presence was infectious. No doubt, a light has gone out.

I knew Trudy from the Louisville Recreation Center, as we practiced yoga together for many years. I remember Trudy as a kind, beautiful, spirited woman who took care of her body and soul and was always welcoming to others, generous with her smile. She fought her disease with passion and ferocity. That front left corner spot will always belong to Trudy.

I loved my aunt. Whenever she was around you felt as if you were listened to, cared about, and loved, such was her giving nature. She will be dearly missed.
