    Remembering Aunt Trudy with great fondness.  She bought me a dog at St. Lawrence market in 1944.  My Dad was none to happy but ended up loving it.  I always called Aunt Trudy "Nanny" when I was young.
    The first time I introduced her to Bill when I was 15 and Doug was in the baby carriage, she said " your going to marry that young man".  Sure enough I did.
    She always amazed me how she could knit socks on four needles and never look at what she was doing.
    She loved baking just like my Mom.
    She was a wonderful lady and will be missed.
