    I haven’t seen Judy for many years, but as I look back on my memories of her, I can’t remember a part of my life that I didn’t know her. To know Judy, was to know to walk a straight line, or she’d sure teach you how to! My thoughts and prayers are with Sean & Matthew and family. R.I.P Judy.

    So sorry for your loss. I went to school with Judy and lived nearby when we were in school. She was a fun person to be around. Unfortunately we lost contact with each other over the years. Thoughts and prayers for the family during this difficult time.
