Vicky and I had fond memories of all the Van Schyndel family. So many things...music, education, plays, St. Augie's, parish picnics....were enjoyed together. And Trudy was the ROCK of the family on the hill, very much like Vicky in the valley.
We males in both families are most appreciative of their strengths.
P.S. I apologize. Just received the news at 11:30 am Friday.

I have very found memories of your Mom and Dad, who I first met
in Dundas in 1960. We had just arrived from the Netherlands.
Your Dad and my husband both worked for Ben Veldhuis.
So sorry to hear of your Mother's passing. Both your parents were very special people. I will always remember them.

My deepest ssympathy

Our sincere sympathies to the family of Trudy. Her and Simon were very dear friends to our parents, Leo and Ann Kuypers. Our dad just turned 90 in the Fall as well, and we hope he is able to make it to the visitation and funeral for your sweet mother. They were a very special and loving couple. They were there for us when our mother passed away 8 years ago and were always so thoughtful. We will keep you all in our prayers as you lean on God at this sad time and may He comfort you in your time of mourning. Rest assured she has joined your dad in love and peace, Jim and Helen, John, Diane and Linda and families.
