My dear friend since 1957. We worked together at the FRB and spent many good times together--especially later in life at luncheons with our dear retired friends. We spent lots of times with stories of children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Trudy was a planner and kept us all connected for so many years. Trudy always had a smile and greeted us with love and complete friendship. We will miss you, dear one. My love, tears of joy and tears of love, Shirl
