I first met Trudy in 87 or 88. We became friends immediately while working at women's center. From there we both went to Walden c.i. she moved on to Tyger River I went to what was then state class now central classification. Trudy took that leap of faith across the yellow brick road to retirement. We have always kept in touch. I last saw Trudy at my mom's funeral April 20, 2016. GOD Bless You my friend. May you rest in peace.
