I'm sorry that I won't be able to attend Saturday. Angele and I are so sorry for your loss. I can only think of the good times we had at the times we were all together. Zip, Pat, Ricky and the rest of our crowd. I hope you can hold on to and carry those great memories with you for as long as you live. Stay strong.

I was a teacher at Trudy's elementary school in '68-'69. A piece of me dies whenever I learn of a student's death. Some people play telephone tag; Trudy and I were playing reunion tag: Every reunion I was able to attend, Trudy couldn't; every reunion I couldn't, Trudy would be there! I will remember her for the nice note she sent me a number of years back, thanking me for forming a Facebook alumni club so she could reconnect with her old friends. So our next encounter, it looks like, will be in heaven. I know Trudy's sure to be there. The jury's still out about me!
