I was so saddened to hear of Judy leaving this world to be with the Lord. She was an amazing wife, mom, sister, and friend to all who knew her. The last time I saw Judy was at a family reunion and she was kind enoigh to take me to see her cows. We always had a few good laughs. There were many things that were wonderful about Judy, but my favorite is that when she looked at you and smiled, you actually felt her warmth and love.I have been and will continue to keep all who loved her in my prayers...that you will feel the peace and comfort that only God can bring.

Dear Caesar, Mike, Louie, Tom and Marty, Danny and Dianne,
Please know that we are thinking of you as you grieve the death of Judy. May the many wonderful memories you have of her comfort you now and in the days to come. Mom said she thought of Judy as her little sister and as you know she was Mary Ann and John's junior bridesmaid.
We have wonderful memories of our trips to Auburn. And I'm so glad mom, Barb and I got to that reunion. You are kind and wonderful people who hold a special place in our hearts. We will always remember Judy's warm, loving smile. Hugs to each and everyone of you!
Mary Jo and Mark
