I was in a group with Trudi. I just got news of her passing. We didn't know each other well, but we had a bond. She was a kind woman with experiences that helped me better my life and my marraige. She will be greatly missed.

Tina, Curtis, and family,

It has been years since I saw Trudi. Of course I was always visiting Tina and Marty in our old neighborhood (Barrow Heights). I am stunned to see that she has passed away. Please accept my heartfelt sympathy and know that each of you, her family and friends, will be in my thoughts and prayers. Trudi and Curtis were dating back in those days and I remember their kindness to me. Also, weren't Trudi and Curtis and extra in a movie made at the race track there in Winder? I always thought that was great. She will always live on in many hearts as well as in Hollywood Film history. Not all of us can claim that! God Bless you Trudi!

Curtis and Family: So sorry to hear of your loss. Trudi was definitely an inspiration to all that knew her. Trudi was a dear friend and co-worker to my Mom at Dr. Huff's Office. I can't help but "smile" when I think of the good times we had with your family and Brickner family back in the day. My thoughts and prayers are with you, Mr. Curtis, David and family. Mrs. Trudi will be missed but I assure you her memory will live on!! (Jan's Daugher, April)

Dear David & family. I just wanted to tell you that I am thinking of you all with a heavy heart for your loss of Trudi, Mother, Wife, Grandmother and many roles to many people. Since words will never say what I feel or change how you feel as you go through this, I am just "being here with a note" praying for strength for you all. One thing we have in common is David being an only child like my son . Truly I can say that Trudi did a great job, just like I tried to do with mine of "raising David,loving son and a true gentleman" Somehow I feel Trudi, who I never knew, would love good things said to and about her family. So I am praying for you all as a family to have comfort, strength and love in your quest of standing tall for Trudi, as I know you will, now and always. God Bless you all.
