I first met Judy at Allied Van Lines. She was wonderful to work with. Years had passed and through various mergers and acquisitions of our company we lost touch. Only to find that after I retired snd joined Cress Creek Garden Club that our paths would cross again. I walked into a member’s home (where weekly summer workshops were held) only to be pleasantly surprised to see Judy and reconnect all over again. I will miss her. She was a wonderful, caring person. My heartfelt sympathy for your loss.

I did not know Judy very long but it was easy to see how beautiful of a soul she is. No matter what she was going through in any given moment, she was always the one trying to comfort and reassure you. Judy is heavily missed by all of her care givers, especially me. May she smile down on all of us and enjoy her peace that she fought to obtain.
