My family sends our deepest condolences to Bob, Ken and Kristin on the passing of Judy. Your Mom was such a loyal and caring friend to my Mom, Anne, and it gives me comfort to imagine my mother's spirit welcoming Judy over to the other side. I have fond memories of my Mom laughing out loud often during their phone conversations through the years. And I will always be grateful to have become friends with Judy following the passing of my Mom in 2004. Judy became a nurturing presence in my life, always remembering birthdays and anniversaries. (To this day, no one in my family remembers my wedding anniversary, bless their hearts, but Judy always did!) And I know she would be so happy that Kristin and I, also kindred spirits, are continuing the legacy of female friendship that our mothers began. Much love, Meredith, Günter & Annika
