Judy has been a great friend for 21 years..her perfection, her beauty, her kindness and love for life will be cherished. The last few years she has proven to be stronger then anyone I have met and it brings me comfort to know she is at peace. My oldest was her student 21 yeaars ago and we worked side by side together in school and in life throughout the years. you will be missed more then you will ever know. Thank you to her companion Don for his daily visits to you and all his love, it speaks volumes to who you are. you brought the best out of your friends, students and those you touched. your spirit will soar unlike any other. We will forever miss you and I thank you for being such a amazing women. PEACE MY DEAR FRIEND. you were a second mother to me and it brings me comfort to know we always understood the unspoken comfort of unconditional love, grace and with a wonderful sense of humor, we took every good day we could get over the last 5 years.

Mrs. Houlihan was a warm and wonderful preschool teacher. Both of my children were fortunate to be in her class and I learned so much from her as a new parent. I am grateful for the role she played in our family's lives. Blessings to her family at this difficult time. Thank you for sharing her with us.
