To the Carpenter Family, I am so very sorry for your loss. I have such great memories of Judi! I always liked her and thought of her often. One time when she was at our house fixing my mothers' hair and I was talking so much that she said she would pay me a dollar if I stopped talking for an hour. She won that bet. I remember when she "babysat" for us. I remember when our families went to Sprout Lake and had so much fun. Judi was close to my mother and spent a lot of time with us. She will be missed.
