Jezz's eyes widened in surprise. She blinked at Rudy for a moment as she digested the information, before a large beaming smile split her face and her eyes watered a little. "You knew my father? My parents had their date nights, but I never knew where they went." A memory tingled in the back of her mind. Her eyes widened. "You were at the funeral, weren't you? I was still in college then and I was just... I'm sorry. I didn't speak to a whole lot of people there."
