I would like to express my sincere sympathy to you and all your families for the passing of your mother. I have many memories of her and playing in the backyard on Gunkel with all of you. Her voice comes through like a clear call. We had a lot of fun. She and mom had some great talks and friendship over the years. Wishing all of you God's healing,

I am so sorry to hear about the loss of Mrs. Rudnicki. She was still the same person at 90 that she was her whole life. She always made me feel like part of the family every time I saw her.

I really liked her energy.
