    Trula was a dear friend and neighbor of my husband Vernon and I for many years. I am saddened to learn of her death.
    I am even more saddened not to be able to attend her funeral service as I no longer have a car. Know that my thoughts
    and prayers are with the members of her family. God, in His mercy always knows when the time has come to take
    a loved one home. Know that it was a joy and privilege to have had Vernon and Trula in our lives. My thoughts and prayers
    are with her family on Tuesday.

    So sorry to read this today. It also shocked me because I just knew she would be here forever. She was such a strong person, she just kept going no matter what. Gay, I've missed seeing you at the store. Prayers to the whole family.
