I had the privilege of getting to know and love Judy while working at the Monmouth House under MCD. She was weary and cautious when she first met someone, but once you were safe with Judy, she quickly wrapped her tentacles around you and drew you in to be a forever friend. I will always treasure and remember her favorite puppies, gestures, expressions and her love of snack time. I will always remember her love of staff who, again, she drew in close and counted on them to brighten her day.

My warmest condolences to Paul, Jane and all of Judy's extended family members during this difficult time.

Sincerely and Prayerfully,
Greg Fraser
