My late sister, Missy and I were welcomed into the Desrocher family fold after we lost our parents. Knowing that we would be two sisters celebrating holidays alone, Judy, Bert and Michelle welcomed us into their holiday festivities and other celebrations where we would feel the warmth of family love and traditions once more. We were truly blessed. Jane (Atkinson) Leifester

My deepest sympathy to Judy's children and siblings. Judy welcomed me into her home to celebrate holidays with family so warmly during those years I lived in Maine that I felt like part of the Gagnon family. I marveled at her many talents especially quilting .
May she rest in peace and receive the rewards of her labors.
