So sorry for your loss. Trudy was a great nurse and a wonderful, kind person in life. I have many fond and funny memories of our times spent working together and various trips we took. She was always supportive and welcoming to everyone she had contact with. She will always be remembered. I'm sure she is very happy now being with her parents and her son and looking after all of us on this side of life. RIP Trudy.
