    We are so sorry to hear about Trudy’s passing. Tim has very fond memories of his days working with her at the Glass Kitchen, and many in my extended family recall her kindness and friendliness when they think of luncheons where both she and my grandmother were in attendance.

    She has raised a strong, loving family with whom we are honored to be connected, and we pray for your
    solace and healing in the days ahead.
