I'm going to miss seeing your beautiful dolls every year at the fair, Judy, I always loved when you'd win best in show. Our Kmart days to! Between my parents and you, you 3 taught me what it takes to be a hard worker, thank you for that. You'll be missed dearly but I'm glad your back with Paul.

We had a lot of fun at the Big K. I will remember Judy as always being cheerful and fun to work with. I recently saw Judy when she came into the store to shop around for some garden items. It was a real treat. Judy you will be missed. God Bless and God Speed my friend,

I worked with Judy at Kmart for years and she was my birthday buddy. We always had a lot of laughs and she always reminded me that there was no I in team. She always came to pick me up when I tried to call in, my car wouldn’t start or I was dead on the side of the road. I’m so glad I got to see you a few weeks ago, gave you hugs and let you know I can never look at a flamingo and not think of you.. you will truly be missed buddy R.I.P....... Dorothy

You will be missed a lot. Working with you at Kmart for almost 35 years was a good time. You always had a laugh that was unforgettable and smile to match. Thanks for all the memories.
Glad you are in the arms of your Paul again.... never to be separated again.
Love ya,
