Inez and I were sorry to hear about your Mom’s passing…I remember the good old days…and unfortunately…so many things have deteriorated since then. Lots of good memories though.
I hope we can get together when I am in Albany…next…Usually will be up 2 or 3 times over the next couple of months.
Again…my thoughts and prayers.
your old friend…Peter Perry

The Rudzinski Family
Sandra & family,
Please know that you are all in our prayers. My mom & dad (Steve & Bernice Rudzinski) saw the notice in the paper and alerted me to the news. We have a lot of fond memories of the Rudinski family (Pinky, Betty and their children) and all of the great family gatherings we had for many years. The memories remain treasures and will be in our hearts forever.
