I was so saddened to hear of Judith's illness and her passing. She was a pleasure to know and work with. She had a smile that lit up her whole face and everyone around her. She had a love of people and a love of life. It was always nice to see her when she was in Los Angeles. Such a great loss to all of us.

Robin and Judith were wonderful neighbors and mentors to me growing up. I will never forget Judith's warmth and kindness to my mother and I. She was one of the most wonderfully warm and optimistic people I've had the pleasure to know. I can't believe she's gone and my deepest condolences and love to Robin and the family.

Our sympathy and thoughts for you, Robin, and to Judith's extended family. We were among the many whose lives are richer today for the time that we knew Judith and experienced her grace and enthusiasm in our lives. Judith freely gave others what most of us so rarely experience so genuinely and are often remiss or inept at imparting the same to others: cordiality and dignity. Daniel and Brenda Freeman

Robin - thank you for sharing Judith with us every year so she could go to the beach (Panama City Beach, Florida) with the girls. I learned about her life and adventures each year as we talked for hours sitting or walking on the beach. She was so curious about how to cook the meals we made and always wanted to help, even though she admitted she was really not a cook. The memory of her will always be in the wind and surf on the white sand beaches of PCB. I know that she is at peace and she will be missed by all of us.

I know she preferred "Judith" but I still think of her as "Judy" from our days in "The (softball) group" in Dallas. I am so grateful for her friendship and that she and Robin continued to keep in touch after we all long moved from Dallas. Of all the wonderful memories I carry, I am especially moved by the fact that she always asked about me and my daughters and granddaughter and never complained about herself. I am so sad about her passing and Robin, I am so sorry for your loss.

My thoughts and prayers are with Judith's family and friends. I have been fortunate to have known her professionally for many years. Throughout that time, I have also considered her to be a friend. She was intelligent, fair, strong, dignified and loved to laugh. She will be missed by many.
