My heart is very heavy and I am shocked to have just received the very sad news today September 16, 2013 of my second cousin, Judy Bandi's sudden passing from this life. I visited Judy in Georgia in 2011 and during that visit she informed me that she had never been baptised but she loved the Lord and felt that she really needed to be baptized in His name. I said, "Judy if you are ready to be baptized I can baptize you in your large family bathtub. She readily agreed. My daughter Karen and her husband Steve Cole was with me and after we prayed awhile we baptized Judy in that large tub and the Spirit of the Lord came upon her in a might way and her face began to shine she was so happy. I always called Judy every week to encourage her but since the first of August I had not been able to get an answer until today but through all of our sadness I feel certain that God decided to take her into a much better place that was prepared to receive her. Judy, my dear I will miss you greatly and I will always love and admire you.
Your second cousin, Dr. Ralph J. McIntyre.

My deepest and warm prayers to one of my best friends. T, I know how much you loved your mother and how much she cared for you. A terrific lady and she will be missed by all.

Love you always and forever,

At a moment that has stricken me with such shock to learn the news of a person that meant more than words can express. Judy was so precious to me.....a great friend....a former co-worker....an angel.....a mentor.... a beautiful person that treated me as if I were her son. We worked together at GTE Supply in Atlanta for many years and the best part was that our friendship didn't stop as we walked out the door each night from a long day at work....it continued beyond and developed into a lifetime friendship. Judy enlightened my day with so many stories and certainly so much laughter. Teresa and I both have birthdays in September. I could count on a call every September from Judy. She would always remind me that my birthday was coming and would laugh asking where the time had gone but the laughter was that she would say "ya'll are getting old" followed with laughter. Yes Teresa she loved to laugh at you and I each time we had a birthday. That laugh was contagious and would resonate deep within my soul, so if I was having a bad day I could just hear Judy's laughter and it would be the healing medicine that always left me smiling. It is so hard to share just a few words when this type of friendship was a blessing in my life. Her advice, her caring words, her natural ability to bring laughter to any conversation. For those of you who know Judy will understand how many times she and I vowed not to watch the Braves play again.... each season we would say I am done watching that team and every Spring we would say the Braves are going to be great this season....and when they would choke in the playoffs I would find my phone ringing or I would call her to ask what the heck happened to those Braves. At the end of the call we would laugh and say maybe next year. Sometimes we would get on the subject of politics ...wow we could heat the calls up with some fierce conversations about our disapproval of current news and politics. Even though we were not happy with the news it always turned to that laughter. If you have read this long message you have noticed I used the word laughter a lot to describe Judy. Judy's laughter will live on through each of us so when you think of her then think of the laughter and hear the laughter within you because I assure you as Teresa and I get closer to our birthday we will hear that laughter which will be what we need at that very moment. My heart breaks for the family and friends who loved Judy as much as she loved all of us yet we all know Judy would find a way to make us laugh even with a tear about to fall. My thoughts and prayers are with you all and may your memories of Judy always leave you with a smile and a reason to make those around you laugh. It is the best medicine and it comes from the best person I know who could always share a laugh.

My thoughts and prayers are with you, she sure loved her family. I worked with Judy in Atlanta with Verizon for about 10 years. She shared so many great times with us, and always gave us a smile and laughter. She will be missed in this life, but we will see her in Heaven for sure!

Words cannot express how much you will be missed! As my Aunt and Godmother you were an inspirational part of my life. Always there to lend a hand or a listening ear, offering words of encouragement and advice. I will always cherish our memories together and await the day that we meet again. I love you so very much! Teresa and Lori, I am so very sorry for your loss, you are in our thoughts and prayers.

Phil.4:13 I can do everything through him who gives me strength.

Your mother had a sweet spirit, a kind word for everyone and truly lived as a disciple of Christ's. My life is better for having known her.
I pray you both find great peace in the way she lived her life and the knowledge she is in heaven today.

I was so sorry to hear about Judy.
She was inspirational and brilliant. I was always so happy she had a chance to stay with me in England. My heart is with you Lori and Teresa.

Lori and Teresa, Words can not express my saddness. Your Mom was one of the most inspiring women that I have ever met. The battles she faced and always with a Smile. She knew what the true meaning of Life meant. She will always be missed in our family. I can still hear her beautiful Laugh and that Positive outlook she always had. And that I will always be Grateful for. Please know we are all thinking of you during this time and we are there for you. Hugs and Kisses. Sheryl
