The family would like to thank everyone for the prayers and love. The out-reach has been amazing. Trudy was one of a kind she will be missed. There is no greater comfort then to know her faith in the Lord was without question. Knowing we will see her again is very comforting. We ask that you come celebrate the amazing life of a wife, a mother to many, and a friend to many more. She may no longer be here but her kindness and love may it live on in our heart
