Rudy and Irene were special neighbors to the Stafford family. We lived behind them on Emerald Gardens and they helped us raise our 3 daughters! We especially loved their surprise visits with a loaf of homemade baked bread or fresh tomatoes from Rudy's garden. Your mom and dad were examples of faithfilled, Christians who lived lives in service to others. We know they are home now, probably having coffee and cake with Nick and Lil Nickles while catching up !! Keeping your family close in our prayers.
