    Trudy was sunshine personified. Her constant warmth & bright smile lit up an entire room. She was a truly beautiful soul & a dear friend. She always made my day better. I loved our talks about life & love. We loved dancing & goofing around with one another. She was truly the highlight of my days. Sending love & light to all of her beautiful children that she loved so dearly & the rest of her loved ones. She made a profound impact on my life. I miss her immensely. Thank you, sweet Trudy.✨✨

    I had the great good fortune to partner with Tom Flaherty during our time together as members of the Corporate Communicatios department at Dravo Corporation. Tom was a wonderful fellow, whip smart and great fun to be with. Whenever he was complimented on his good work, Tom was always quick to say that the real talent in his family belonged to his beloved wife Trudy. How very proud he was of everything she accomplished as mother to their children in their private lives and creator of a thriving real estate practice. My sincere condolensces to Trudy’s children, and heartfelt thanks for sharing their dad with his colleagues at Dravo. Tom and Trudy were a matchless couple.
