Trudie didn't like playing with toys much cos she never had toys before. I was her best toy and we played all the time. She would chase me outside around and around. I miss her chasing me, and when I stand outside in Alcatraz I always think about her and pretend she is still there right by my side chasing and nipping on me.
This is a picture of Turd and one of the grandmonsters that loved her. She had never felt the love of a child before she came to live with us. It was one of the gifts of love that we were able to give her.
Sometimes Mom exposed Trudie to things she didn't like...such as standing on the chair for a picture taking moment. All she wanted to do was get down and play with me!
Trudie sometime would teach mom a lesson for leaving us and going to work..this use to be our little pee pads but now it is just white fuzz all over the bedroom floor.
Mom was pretty mad at Dad when Dad first brought Turd home, but in about five seconds of holding her trudie and mom fell in love with each other. Turd had never had anyone hold her and love her before and she knew she was gonna love all of us as much as we loved her. Sometimes I was a little jealous cos she adored mom so much and always wanted moms attention. I feel bad about that now but i know Trudie understands. Trudie taught us alot also. Sometimes in the evening Mom and I still go into the livingroom and sit in the quiet and listen. It still hurts our hearts alot to talk about her so we are gonna close. We just wanted her to know we didn't forget her gotcha day.
We love you Trudie Long-Simpson
