    Such sad news. Traudel was a good friend for many years. Even after she moved to Richmond, we still spent time together and kept in touch. I will miss her. My sincerest condolences to her family and friends.

  4. She loves plants. All she had to do was to think about growing one and it was there.!!
    She also loved Frank Sinatra!!
