Dear Dale, Ron, Shar, Becky and Evonne,
I'm so sorry to hear about Judy's passing. I have a lot of good, fun memories of hanging out at the Monnot household when Judy and I were teenagers! Never a dull moment! I'm asking God to grant you comfort and peace during this difficult time. Enjoy your memories ~ I'm sure that's what she would want.
