I worked with Judy moons ago at Wally world and I would always run into them at the ansonia legion fish fry. Many times Jude would tell me about how crazy he would make her. Lol. After Judy retired, I would still swing by every now and again to visit and talk fishing with Richard and talk to Jude about her grandkids. They are and they were some of the nicest folk I have ever known. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Dick and Judy were the kindest neighbors. Dick loved to share his stories and passion about fishing for saugeye and gardening. Judy, his love, she always had a smile to share. I pray they are together again. God bless you all in this time of loss.
