Condolences & Memories (9 entries)

  • My sincere condolences to Joanne, Thor and Kim. It has been many years since my figure skating days but I remember Rudy’s big smile for everyone, even a kid from way up north. Rudy had a special way of making you feel like you were part of the family, for me the figure skating family. He passed this gift onto his family. Although I have not seen he family for years you have all been stored in a special place of my heart. Thinking of you all during this time. - Posted by: Shannon Harris (Figure Skating friend) on: Feb 20, 2020
