I'm so sorry for your loss. Last weekend I was in Cherokee NC and saw a pic of a couple behind the counter. It looked just like Joe and Trudy except the guy wasn't wearing an El Senor hat . It got me thinking about them and I hadn't see them at the German American club in a while. Again so sorry for your loss Joe and family.
