    My prayers are with your and Trudy's family, Jack. I have so many fun memories of Trudy and Cheryl as I and my sisters were growing up on Peter Ave. in Rockford, The Larson girls were always full of joy and mischief, ha! Cheryl, I am so sorry for your loss as I know how close all you sisters were and are. You are such a strong lady and I know you are fighting your own battle and hopefully very successfully. Know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. My deepest sympathy for you and all the family. I will write you. Love, Bettianne Williamson Hearn.

  4. Linda Williamson Goffinet

    Praying that the Lord Jesus Christ will see you through this time with His covering of strength and love, and that He will help you realize that your memories are a precious source of healing and comfort. My memories of Trudy during high school and visiting at the Larson house were always filled with laughter and sometimes murmuring about the duties of polishing the furniture till it glowed on Saturdays. Jack, I am thrilled that you had 54 wonderful years with Trudy. She was a very special gem. With Deepest Sympathy for You and Your Family, Don and Linda Williamson Goffinet
