    Our condolences to Rudi’s family.
    We met Rudi when we had our house built in Whitehorn. During construction I kept in touch with Rudy almost daily. I was impressed at how patient he was in working with us. The house was completed in early 1988 and we continue to live in it today. Workmanship was of top quality. Many people have unpleasant experiences with their builder. Our experience was positive and we have not forgotten how nice Rudi was to work with.
    Rest in Peace Rudi.
