Judi came to stay at my house a couple of summers ago when my grandmother Diana Colfelt was in town. She was taking a shower and my boyfriend walked in on her. She jokingly told him to join her. He was so embarrassed and we all laughed about it later. When I think about Judi, I will think about how funny she was but also how genuinely caring she was.

This wonderful lady was my sister-in-law and remained so after Jim and I divorced. We stayed in touch and We will miss her. I can see her smile and hear her laugh. I remember the crazy things we did in or after school.
We are so sorry for the loss of your mother Chris, your sister Jim and Martha.

Ron and I met Judy through our sons. She was a wonderful fan and supporter of her son, Chris! But Judy supported all the boys and cheered their successes! We loved her friendly, sassy energy! Her joyous, friendly spirit made us feel like we knew her forever...until we meet again Judy!

We’ve been friends since October 1966 when we both were working at Macy’s Downtown for the Buyers. My heart is broken that you are gone way too soon. I think about you everyday but I know that you are in a better place! You had the best remarks & could always make me laugh!
You are one of my longest true friends and I miss you & Love you!

I'm still trying to wrap my head around all of this. I can't believe you're gone. You could be a big pain sometimes but you had the biggest heart & so much love to give. You were always there for me & I knew I could count on you. You didn't know a stranger & were always the one to make everyone laugh. I thank god for giving me the years I had with you. I'm lost, broken, angry & confused. I love you so much & miss you, you will always be in my heart & I have so many good memories. I hope you know just how much you are loved. Rest in Paradise Aunt Judi, until we meet again. I love you!
