I have had the good fortune of being neighbors with Judy for over 20 years. She has always been one of the most positive people I have ever met. And she constantly would ask you questions about yourself and showed such genuine interest in whoever she spoke to. Her smile lit up a room and you could never be depressed with Judy around. I know she adored Buddy and sang his praises every chance she got. I will miss her. Mary Steele
