Dr. A, I am so sorry this happened. I know how happy you were when you found Judy. She sure put a spring into your step. I was looking you up to see if maybe you "unretired" when I found this. You are in my thoughts.

Dear Family:

It is with my deepest sympathy that I write to you today. Judy, was my niece and while the years and miles between us have been great, I will never forget her smiling face and some of the times we shared when she was a young girl. Her passing prompted me to look at old pictures and I hope to be able to send that soon.
