Dan, Kelly, Sarah, John and family , I am so sorry for the loss of your mom and grandmother. Such a strong woman! She will be a tough act to follow, but she has left you with that strength and courage to move on even when things may not look so promising. The last couple of years of her life, struggling with one health issue after another, she never gave up. I'm so thankful to have known her as my Aunt, and will miss hearing updates about her from you, Kelly. May God richly bless your family with wonderful memories, peaceful thoughts and the comfort that only comes from Him.

Sorry for your loss, Jim. I know how much she meant to you. She was always happy and fun to talk to.

I am one of Judy's cousins. I loved Judy more then anyone of my cousins. She was one of a kind. When you were with her you hated to leave her. I still can't believe she has passed. I will miss her, till I see her again.

Kelly & Danny; I'm so saddened to hear of your mom's death. I have a lot of fond memories of her. One of them is the New Year's day family get to-gether and all the fun everyone had at your house. That was many years ago, but still quite vivid in my mind. Judy loved entertaining and was a great hostess. Keeping you both in my prayers. Love you; Aunt Bev.

I met Judy way back when I worked at Ben Franklin and she worked at Woosley's Shoes...we spent many a slow night talking across the mall;) I remember her fondly and am so sorry for your loss.

To all who may read this: Judy was a true friend in every sense. It never mattered what period of time passed between conversations or visits, Judy made you feel like you had just seen her. She always let you feel her love for you. It was a remarkable gift God gave her. Our conversations always ended with the same words, "I love you" and those words we said to each other the last time we spoke. While I watched the photo show at Judy's service yesterday, one photo caught my attention and at first I didn't understand why. When the photo came around again , I realized that the photo was taken in my home many years ago, and my Mother's Miami Beach Birthday cake was on the table in front of Judy and Jim. Not only did I receive a happy memory with my friends, I received one from my Mother who is with Judy and they're both smiling. Rest well my dear friend and know that one day we'll see each other again and say, "I love you".
