Judy and I were best friends first meeting approximately in 1977 at Little Aetna in West Hartford CT. She was very well liked by everyone and our friendship became one that I will always treasure as I have for the past 40 years. Judy was very humorous and wherever we went we always found something to laugh about and became a team like Laurel and Hardy making people laugh at our crazy antics. She was very caring always worrying about how my sugar levels were even though she was
also a diabetic and went through a lot.
I could go on and on about Judy’s
qualities but there isn’t enough space for me to do that. Anyone that knew her is aware of all of them that I would have listed. Judy’s passing came way too early.
May she Rest In Peace.

Frank, Irene and Family -
Even though Judy and I lost contact a few years back, I was saddened to learn of her passing. As in my note to you, I'd like to remember Judy when we first became friends back in 1973, when our families made the move to Rocky Hill from Hartford. Please accept my condolences and know you are in my thoughts and prayers. May Judy rest well and may her spirit soar.

First let me start by saying you are gone way too soon. We had so many fun times from toddlers to teens!! We were together every summer at my parents for 2 weeks, we cooked, played and constantly swam in the pool, even hanging out with boys!! We had fun times at Hampton Beach riding the waves and you losing your bathing suit!!! We were always comparing stories of the nuns you had at the Mount and the nuns I had at OLAA. Those were such good talks and times.
I can’t thank you enough for being so supportive when I was pregnant with Lisa, you were always there. We shared in each other’s weddings as well as the deaths of both our parents.
You always told me how no matter how sick your dad was with cancer how he always danced with you. Well now you are with him and dancing again. I love you Judy and you will be forever in my heart.
