Dearest Ohio Family,

It is with deep sadness that I sit down to write you this message, if you only knew how much I love(d) your Mom, my Aunt through marriage!

The tradition started soon after my father-in-law was buried on my birthday, February 26,1983. Your Mom always remembered her "Maty" on this date by calling me on my birthday and sending me flowers. Years later, NagyMama passed away, also on February 26, and from then on our birthday phone calls would remember Maty and NagyMama while wishing me a happy birthday. Another momentous February 26 was marked by the birth of Brigitta! and our yearly phone calls reminisced Maty, NagyMama, congratulated my birthday and Brigitta as well. We had long conversations about the Ohio Relles, the Maryland Relles, who was where and who was getting married, having a baby and on and on. I cherished these phone calls!

For 30 years your Mom, my Aunt NEVER MISSED MY BIRTHDAY, NOT EVER! until this year..... When the doorbell rang and the florist delivered flowers, I took it for granted they were from my TrudiNeni, like always, but they were from my Katherine. When my birthday came and went with no phone call from TrudiNeni I knew something was wrong.

Over the years I have nurtured the flowering gifts she sent me, sometimes the plants lasted a long time, sometimes they didn't. If they didn't make it I always thought another one would come along to take it's place. The plant your Mom sent me last year has thrived and now I know this will be the last one she will have ever sent to me, and I am crying.

Many people will send you regrets at this time. I have no regrets, I am truly thankful to have had the opportunity to be in your Mom's life and will treasure her memory eternal. If we have any regrets, it's that Brian and I are unable to be with you for TrudiNeni's special day. God Bless your Mom.

All our love,
Brian and Mary Lou Relle

A lovely lady, I remember many times being with her at Hungarian affairs and hearing her sing. She will be missed by many.

I will always have lovely memories of Trudi--singing with her in the Columbus Damenchor. She was always with a smile, and eager to talk about her musical career in Germany. My son is studying to be an opera singer, and at several events at the Mannerchor, they had nice conversations. Several of us ladies had a wonderful time sitting at her table at last November's Mannerchor Banquet at Capital University. The attached photo is from that evening. (I am the one standing behind Trudi and her friends.) She will be missed by all of us singers. And now she can sing with the angels!
