  1. An old friend from college… I have been searching for my dear friend for years, only to find out she has been by my side for almost 2 whole years…
    My deepest sympathy to her family.
    I am heartbroken.
    Trudy was my buddy, my roommate, my confident, as I was hers, for 3 years, and then life swept us off our feet and we went our separate ways.
    Trudy spoke often and fondly of her parents, her sister and brother-in-law and niece. She adored you all. I am glad to know she fulfilled her dream to become a lawyer. May her daughter know what a wonderful, fun-loving woman her mother was.
    Luv you, Trudy xoxo
