Judy and I worked together at Shop Rite on Spencer Street in Manchester beginning in the mid-eighties. Her children and mine were young, and we talked each other through so many, many difficult times. Over the many years since the eighties, we were sometimes in touch daily and sometimes not in touch for long stretches of time. But when one of us called the other, it was always as if only a few days had gone by. Judy was genuine and was the true friend I was so lucky to have.
My thoughts are with Todd, Bryan and Heather as they go forward from here. Janine

Shocked today to read of the passing of a beautiful person. 55 years ago Judy and I worked together at Stop and Shop on Garden st. Judy was my first girlfriend, a memory I still cherish.
I saw a few times since then, and was so happy to connect with her again on Fcaebook.
My prayers for all those who loved her and now have to go on , like me, with only memories.
"How lucky are you to have had someone so har to say good bye to."

It is with much sadness I read of Judy's passing. Just last night, I mentioned her name and the fact I'd not seen Judy at Geislers in quite a while, where we enjoyed several conversations.
