So many wonderful memories of my Aunt Trudy, Oma. She was my best friend, my surrogate mother and my confidant. I have always known how much she loved me and she always knew how much I loved her. God blessed us with each other and an amazing long term priceless relationship. I already miss my lipstick wearing best friend and getting through the future without stopping by for coffee and doughnuts is going to be difficult. I thank Jesus Christ my savior for blessing us with each other. 
To Marvin, Ron and their immediate families, my heart is relieved knowing she is at peace, yet selfishly missing her terribly. Curt and I love each of you and will praying for your peace and comfort for the hard days ahead. Much love in Christ, Rena Hollifield

A wonderful neighbor who was always smiling or laughing. How the Farrow family loved her and her family. She loved Skip. She always prepared German Kraut and wieners for him when he came to Greenville. He probably asked if she brought him some when they met in heaven. She was a delight to know and she will be greatly missed. My love and prayers to the King family. Sybil Farrow Sellers and family.

So many wonderful things to share about my Aunt Trudy, "Oma". She was my best friend, my surrogate mother, my confidant and so much more. I am thankful to our Lord Jesus Christ for the love we shared and the close knit relationship we shared. She was definitely one of a kind who made an impression on me and my life that I will always cherish. Heaven gained a beautiful angel and I know only God could love her more than her family. I'm going to miss our talks and our visits, but I know she will always be right here in my heart forever.
I love you to the moon and back Oma. Marvin, Ron and family I love each and every one of you. Please know Curt and I are lifting each of you in prayers for comfort during this time. 
Much love in Christ,

Dear Marvin, Marcus, Holland, Leanda and family,

How stunning seeing her at the visitation today absolutely beautiful and at peace. You all were blessed in having so many wonderful memories to cherish which will echo in words spoken, an action taken and forever embedded in your hearts. Words however kind can't mend your heartache just know there are so many who care and are sharing this profound loss with each of you. May you find the strength and comfort in the days ahead to get through the sorrow and pain. Extending deep and heartfelt sympathy with much love.

May Michael carry Trudy safely across Jordan. May Lazarus escort her to the presence of Jesus. May the choirs of Heaven sing her a glad song of welcome. May Trudy’s rest be this day in Paradise and her dwelling place with the Saints of God.
Heartfelt love to the King Family, for she was a grand Lady who will be sorely missed by all that knew & loved her.
