We just heard of Rudy's passing at a dinner party in Napa last night, March 30, via a man who lives in San Francisco. Needless to say, as I sit here reading Rudy's obituary on Easter morning, we are so saddened, not quite believing this had happened. As one of my Meiswinkel cousins that I grew up with, the memories are too numerous to even attempt, except to say that they are all so very special. Our hearts and prayers go out to all Rudy's family and we are so sorry not to have been able to share in the celebration of Rudy's life. Our love to you all.
