Mick, Susan and Michael, my prayers are with you today. Judy was a special lady. I spent many bridge games with her. Melanie and Debi always enjoyed the times spent with your family. I know Christmas will be difficult, but memories will be shared and God will be holding you in his hands.

Judy was an incredible woman! She was pleasant and gracious while also being funny and witty. Judy had genuine compassion for all around her with the quality of being able to set boundaries for acceptable relationships. I always admired how she was a rock for her family, there always for her church and a talented nurse and administrator. My fondest memories of Judy are when she and Mike did the Christmas program at the United Methodist Church at Christmas. The love and devotion toward God and Jesus were sincerely evoked by the both them in those singular and expressive moments of devotion. Love you Judy, you are a priceless soul.
