    Arthur, I grieve with you regarding the passing of your dear, sweet Gerty. I'm going to bring some sand from Palm Beach to remember that first time you meet her. May good memories bring comfort to you in the days ahead and may God bless you. I'll be seeing you soon..... David (next door)

    For many years I looked forward to seeing Trudy each month when she came into our office. She was a joy to speak with. On many occasions, looking back over my day, I felt that my conversations with her were the absolute best part of my day. I am so sorry to learn of her passing. May peace be with you at this difficult time. With deepest sympathy, Laura Myers

    I will remember Trudy as a kind person that I tried to help. Over the pass few years we did not see each other often but when we were talking we always had a wonderful time. A very kind lady. Now that the light has gone out here I know she has gone to a much better place. May her family find peace in knowing she did touch many lives while she was with us.
