Heaven gained another Angel. . .
Trudy always a dear friend, such a sweet, loving, kind spirit.
Beautiful lady, full of wit, humor and strength. Talented too, a wonderful seamstress, also very crafty, a perfectionist at everything. Prettiest smile and eyes filled with such delight.
Trudy, loved the LORD with All her heart!

She always enjoyed my husband's music, I remember him playing at her home once for family and friends. She uplifted our hearts many times with her kindness, gave the BEST Hugs ever. Our sweet friend, will be forever missed by us.

Trudy, left a Legacy of LOVE in many hearts
