When I was a troubled teen, Judy would "hire" me to clean her house. I did some cleaning but I recall a lot more talking and joking and card playing. I'm not sure if she was trying to keep me out of trouble or giving me a safe place to talk or helping my mom or all of the above but those are fond memories as I could still be a kid and escape my troubles. Sometimes Janie would come by and they would regale me with stories of my mother when they were kids. Uncle Bud would come home and joke around with me.
Thank you Judy, you reminded me during my selfish period, that my mom was a human being who had a life before me with hopes and dreams. You gave me a temporary refuge and things to think about.

I know you were greeted by your family and I can picture the ladies playing cards and the men drinking beer while pop tells stories from his youth. You are free of the wheelchair and the MS is gone and you and Bud are dancing

What was special about both Judy and Janie, for me, was that we shared our birthday, yes, all three of us. I was born in the morning, they were born at night, so I reminded them both often, I was the oldest and wisest, with lots of laughter. We had a wonderful childhood together, and while not staying close while I remained on Long Island, they moving to Florida, we always felt a bond. As adults, we didn't see each other often, but when we did, it was always kind and special. Judy always had a smile for you and she was always funny and full of laughs. I shall miss her, mostly on my mother's annual birthday party, because she always attended this gathering, and was always lovely to spend time with. RIP with your beloved sister and husband, Bud.
