    Although I only knew for a relatively short time you proved to be a great inspiration to us ‘younger seniors’ by showing us (even at 93) how determination, and strength of character can help us live to a ripe old age. I will fondly remember your ever present smile when I came to visit. It was my honor to be able to assist from time to time in your latter years. You will not soon be forgotten! Looking forward to seeing your smile when we meet again - Craig

    I had the pleasure of meeting you and your dog recently and thought about you the rest of the day because you were so sweet and appreciate even though you were not feeling well. You were a great example to me.

    Miss Trudi was our neighbor and we shared a love of dogs. In fact, I helped her adopt a dog many years ago, i think a maltese? Miss Trudi was a very interesting person who spoke her opinion and had a bright smile. She will be missed walking down the street. She always stopped to talk to my children and would save treats for them on holidays. She was a sweet soul and we will miss her. I hope she & her husband, who she missed so much, are reunited.
