   BARBARA BERNSTEIN  To Rudy's family and Hilde--I am so very sorry for your loss. Rudy was my neighbor for almost 14 years at Fairway Courtyards. In the early days, he and Anna Mae made a point of getting to know everyone in our building and established lasting friendships with many. His presence will be missed.
   Richard S Boblitz  Uncle Rudy you helped me out so much in my life. Without you I would not be where I am today. My father Richard C. Boblitz loved you and Aunt Anna Mae so much. My condolences go out to the family.
   Michael H. Boblitz  I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Uncle Rudy was a great man and I am glad I got to see him one last time at my mothers funeral.
   Rene' (Boblitz) Webb  Uncle Rudy you were such a kind and loving person. Your wisdom and advice has been a blessing to me. You said to me when mother died to try to smile everyday, remember all the wonderful times and learn something new each and everyday... You and Aunt Anna Mae were wonderful people and me and my family will miss you both so much.You will be in our hearts always. May you rest in peace. Love, Rene'
