    I have such sweet memories of Ms. Judy. When she would come by our house to pick up Gary’s girls, she always had a huge smile on her face and many kind words to shower on my wife, Julie. We ran a day care out of our home while our two youngest sons were small. Jordan came to us when her Mom went back to work and stayed with my wife for 4 years or so. Those girls are so very special to us. Jordan called my wife “My Julie”, not to be confused with her Aunt Julie, who she referred to as “that other Julie”. I used to get laughing so hard over that. God gained another angel today and I am sure there was a glorious reunion in Heaven when she walked through the Pearly Gates. Judy will surely be missed by this fellow.

    We are so sorry for your loss and our thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Judy sat next to me at mass every Sunday and we would have the best conversations about our families. She was one of the most genuine, loving and caring person I knew. We will miss her very much.

    Aunt Judy was there for me when my parents divorce. Very Kind and beautiful Lady! Praying for the family through this time

    I am very saddened to hear about Judy and so sorry for your loss. I vividly remember the two of you at South High. Such fun we had in those years. Great memories. Sincerest sympathy to you and your family, Rich. Hugs! ????
