While the pandemic prevented the award from being presented in typical fashion, numerous North Carolina estate planning attorneys, donning masks and carrying umbrellas, appeared in Rudy’s driveway long enough to read a framed proclamation and present Rudy with the award. The proclamation recounted Rudy’s work with the Board of Legal Specialization, with Make-a-Wish, with American College of Trust and Estate Council (ACTEC), with the Section and with family. Rudy spoke about these folks being his best friends and the peers whose respect meant the most to him.
