Memories and Condolences

Renee, I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your mom. I know that mourning a loss like this is not easy. Over time, I pray that your memory of her will overshadow your grief and make you smile. Look for signs. She will be with you. xoxo Alisa
My dear Trudy: Fly with the angels and in God's loving arms be free of pain. We'll always remember the early years, the births of our children, the happy times, the sad times, the laughter, the tears - we got through it all together. Sherry, Renee, Nicole, Grace - you have been blessed in having Trudy for a mother/grandmother. Remember the good times. Lovingly, Aunt Bobbie
Sad news, RIP my friend Trudy. I had pleasure of knowing her and Denny for 25 years. Nice person, proud of her girls and grand girls. She and Denny were always kind, thankful, and had a good sense of humor. Sorry their lives were cut short, but happy they are together again. Thoughts and prayers are with the family.
I'm so very sad to hear this. I haven't seen Trudy since probably the mid 90's during my high school years when I was friends with Renee. But I have such warm and happy memories of spending time in the house, getting my hair cut, and hanging out. Some people definitely leave a lasting impression even if you only know them a short time. All of my love and warm thoughts for the family. ~ Jeff
RIP Trudy many fond memories of you are held with your family in Scotland. Thinking about all our extended King family especially Sherry and Renee. Love and prayers with you all. From all your family in Scotland xxx
Trudy I will miss our meet ups with your beautiful daughter Reneé and granddaughter Grace. I will miss your wise words. I only knew you for nearly 5 years but you are one of my life's favorites especially for your words of wisdom. Rest In Peace Trudy and I promise to keep an eye out on your Reneé and Gracie girl for you. G xxxxx
