So sorry, Trudy. I am so grateful that we got to know each other as adults, thanks to you and Wayne reaching out to us. We really enjoyed catching up at our (mostly) annual meetups which originally included JoAnn and Mom, who have also passed. I remember going to Aunt Isabells when we were kids and especially remember a time when we were all at JoAnns and he and Ross drove my friend and I around Fort Wayne in someones convertible. We thought we were pretty cool. May you find peace in the memories you have shared and in the love and comfort of your children and their families. Love, Char and Colin

A light has been extinguished only to be relit in His heavenly kingdom.
I cant help but smile when I think of Wayne & Trudy, & how we had such great fun & adventures through the years. Church outings & youth group trips will always be among my favorites. God bless your family & may His love & promises sustain you through this time of sorrow.

May the Lord watch over the family and provide peace and comfort. I will always remember the brotherhood in Christ that Wayne and I shared. I will especially always remember his love for our Lord and Savior.
