Dear Rob and Family, I am so , so sorry : I just heard of Judy's passing yesterday and it hit me hard. Many memories of our Cleveland Range years being parents then grand-parents and sharing pictures, and concerts. Steve and Brian your mother always carried a positive attitude on everything as she would want you to, God Bless Judy and the Barrish Family!

This message is for Judy's husband, Rob, her sons, Brian & Steve and their precious families. I've known Judy for years thru Great Clips. I was a loyal customer of hers for years. She cut, permed, styled my hair and I referred her to others and she became my husband's preferred barber when he retired. I always enjoyed talking to her and sharing news about family, current events, whatever. I started my own breast cancer journey in 2013, and then my own daughter in 2016. Judy was always so sympathetic, supportive, and had a cheerful, upbeat attitude! I am devastated by the news of her passing away. She is one of the nicest, kindest ladies around, and I will miss her forever. My heart goes out to you, and I'm sorry I was unable to attend the graveside services for her last week. Rest assured that there are a lot of people who feel exactly the same way as I do. May she rest in peace.
