Dear Mark and Family-
I have been in Chicago for a while attending to family business. Upon returning early this evening, I read the message from the IGBA announcing the passing of your wife Judy after her courageous battle with ALS.

My family and I send our deepest condolences and prayers. God has chosen to bring Judy to His side now. We can take solace in knowing that Judy is with Him and together they are watching over us.

I was sad to hear of Judy's passing. All of my memories of Judy are really good ones. I will always remember her laugh and quirky sense of humor. I have an example...maybe 8 or 9 years old, leaving the annual BBQ at Gram's house and sneaking Judy into our car when we left to go home. Dad had to drive her back once the discovery was made a few miles down the road. He didn't think it was quite as funny as we did.

Praying for peace for all of Judy's loved ones.

Sarah was my best friend for the last half of my childhood, and I spent countless hours in Judy’s kitchen and in the living room, watching afternoon tv and eating snacks and laughing. Judy was a second mother to me for many years. She was brave and funny and loving, and she was generous and kind to her daughter’s socially awkward, opinionated friend. I always felt so welcome there. Now that I’m a mother, I can recognize the look I saw most often on her face - the overwhelming joy and pride and love she felt when in the presence of her kids. I hope I can be as welcoming to my children’s friends as Judy was to me. She was dearly loved, and she will be dearly missed. May her memory be a blessing to all who knew her.

Judy was a huge influence in my life. I have so many memories of growing up behind her in Lake Holiday. Grape Kool Aid, Sunny and Amber, Miracle Whip, treasure hunts, escaped lizards, the velvet Elvis picture, teaching me how to do cross stitch, the list goes on and on. She was one of a kind. Her loss leaves a deep sadness in my heart. Marc, Matthew, Sarah, and family, I am so very sorry for your loss.

Judy was my best friend in high school. We had so much fun together. We especially commiserated with each other having curly hair! What we would do to try to straighten it! She even pierced my ears for me. I lost touch with her once she moved to Springfield and I wish now we had stayed in contact. My heart is heavy for this loss and I am praying for the Lord's comfort and peace for you Marc, Sarah and Matt. God bless you all.

Judy was a wonderful lady with a beautiful spirit. She always
took time to answer any questions. No question was silly for her.
She cared about each and every person. She will be truly missed
by all of the Court Reporters in Illinois whose hearts she touched.
She definitely has earned her Angel's Wings. God speed.

Mark, Donna and I were deeply saddened to learn of Judy's death. We were always happy talking to her at ISU events. As you know more than any one, she was a delightful person and the two of you were the best.
Best wishes always,

I'm so saddened to learn of Judy's passing. Being here in Chicago, she and I shared many hours on the phone solving court reporter related issues and many laughs. She was such a bright person, and always had a smile on her face. Judy will be sorely missed by all. God bless your family. ALS is an insidious disease. We should all pray for a cure.

In sympathy,
