Stupid cancer. I didn’t know Judith but she sounds wonderful. Anyone who’d pack up and move to be closer to her grand babies is full of love and adventure. Bridgette was my funniest quirkiest friend in school. I’m sure she got some of those awesome qualities from her momma. I’m so sorry, my heart is aching for all of y’all, and we’re praying for y’all too.

Dear Stelly/Boudreaux family,
I have great memories of "family" game night at Mr. Greg & Mrs. Judy's house in LA. I'm not actually family, but I was always welcomed as such, and my heart feels so heavy right now. My prayers are with you all. I wish I could be there.
Love,
Mandy

My thoughts and prayers are constantly with Greg, Bridgette, Danielle, Judy’s sisters, Ethan, Asher & Evangelynn. Judy was always so hospitable to us inviting us over for Christmas desserts in Louisiana and meals and visits in Tennessee. I’ll never forget her.
