    I’m so sorry for the loss of your mother. Judy was 1 of kind. She would give her shirt off her back for anyone. She was so kind hearted. She had a smile of gold. There are so many memories I have of her. When I lost my mom 12 years ago she was there for me and my sisters. She was like a second mom to us. She took my kids and my sisters kids in as they were her own grandkids. Always thinking of them on every holiday. Those are moments I will cherish forever. You giving her a grandchild was the happiest moment of her life. She just love her grandbaby. We are here for you and your family if you need anything. You guys will forever be in my heart. Love you all

    Dana and kids

  11. Our deepest sympathy to John and your family. She will be greatly missed.We had great times together. and talked about silly stuff. Things she wrote in my year book. We did alot of laughing. I know we lost touch over the years, but when we got together or talked on the phone the memories were still there. RIP Judy my forever friend.
