    Aunt Trudy fought harder and longer than any I know. I am so proud of her. We all know in our hearts that she is now pain free with her Lord. Her friends on facebook gave her the strength to keep pushing on. To them I give our thanks. You all meant the world to her. Her biggest loves were her children, those precious grandchildren and her family.I know that she is with family that went before us and will be saving us all a place. RIP Aunt Trudy. xoxo Kimbo

    Sweet, smiling Trudy has gone home to her Lord. No more suffering, bless her heart, she was a tough one. I was so glad to be a part of her life. We were cousins that grew up together and played at our grandparents home when young. May God help this family through their sorrow and know that when it rains again, Trudy will be dancing in heaven in the rain. Loved her.

    Will miss her posts on facebook. Always looked forward to reading “Dancing in the Rain”. Trudy was so upbeat and inspiring with her words – made you forget your troubles! Who can forget her stories about “the lawnmower’!! May her family know that she is now walking with our Lord and Savior.

    I am so sorry for your loss. Although, I do not know your family personally, I would like to share some encouraging thoughts from the Bible. The Bible provides comfort during these difficult times. Revelation 21:3-4 states, And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away. Very soon now, we will never experience losing our loved ones in death. May these words give you a new hope.

    Melissa; Just found out about the passing of Trudy. A Passionate Gardener, A warrior with her illness. Peace in the arms of the Lord. So very sorry, have you and your in our Hearts. Paula and Cathy Gay
