I’m so sorry, Judy for you and the rest of your family. Judy was a wonderful person, devoted to her family. As you know we were friends for many years, at St. Joe’s and after . I wish we were able to visit more, we swore to get together after the holidays. I’m so glad you posted on Facebook to let us know of her passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. I’m sure Judy has a front seat in Heaven where there is no “snow”. I miss her already!
