  1. Helga – you and Rudy were always so kind to me, ever since I met you while in High School. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and the entire Family. Love you – Angel Salo Cushma

  2. Helga,
    I am so sorry to hear about Rudy’s passing. I just heard and hate that I missed the services. We had some good times working at Petite and Rudy was a big jokester….I still remember him breading and frying an old shoe sole and serving it to an employee who ordered the dover sole! Hysterical. He could cook anything and make it taste fantastic and was a pleasure to work with, always happy and smiling. May your memories of the happy times together see you through this trying time.
