Our Sincere Condolences
Sorry to hear the news this morning. Judy was a classmate of mine in High School. May her family be comforted by the Lord Jesus Christ.
I worked for Judy as an In-Home aid for two years…. I am so sorry to hear of her passing. She was incredibly sweet and kind, had a lot of interesting stories to tell about her life.
I will miss her so much and enjoyed the time spent with her.
