Some sad news, I’m afraid. Trudy Eastman has died. Fans of Dirty Jobs will remember Trudy as the irrepressible plucker of geese, who kept me amused for the better part of a day with a stream of comments that I believed should be memorialized on a line of tee-shirts. Over the years, I have received many shirts with “Trudy-isms” embroidered thereon.
Trudy was the real deal – a warm, funny, genuinely remarkable woman. I’m so glad I met her. My sympathies to her family, who were truly blessed to have such a soul among them for such a long time.
