Trudie and Wayne were like grandparents to us. I can´t even imagine what our lives would have been like if they did not live across the street. Trudie was always the brightest light in the room and did not take any guff from anyone. I have so many memories of her. She will be missed

Aunt Trudy will always be remembered as a rock to us when we needed her. Mom always called her sis because she was closer than a sister. I will always cherish the childhood memories I have of her & Uncle Wayne, and the items she put her love into making. She never had a unkind word for anyone. Love and hugs to all of you.
