Mrs. Trapp and Family,

Our prayers are with you and your family. I'll always remembering Mr. Trapp reading one of my favorite childhood books, "Thunder Cake," to my second grade class.

May memories and the love of family surround you and give you strength in the days ahead.

Dearest Cherie, I am so very sorry to hear of Bud’s passing. He and I connected the first time I saw him in the Mary Endres Lounge. He was wearing one of his ND sweatshirts. His smile always lit up the room! He will be missed!
