Thoughts and prayers to Judy's children and close friends in their loss and celebration of her life. Julie Shank Hanchar made it possible for the class of '63 alum who attended our last reunion only a week earlier, to send a card with all of the signatures to let her know we were thinking of her and she was with us there in spirit. Wings to fly Judy...

TO Matt, Ned and Jamie, You are in our thoughts and prayers. I have good memories of the lake and how both your mom and dad were instrumental in helping us buy our cottage. Unfortunately both Linda and I have experienced the loss of both parents. It is never easy. Cherish your memories. God's blessings to you all.

July was our neighbor who lived across the street from us as we were growing up on Cornell Circle. I have fond memories of her and her parents, especially her dad, who would inevitably tease us as we rode our bikes on the sidewalk in front of their house. My deepest sympathy and prayers for you and your family.

This was such very sad news! We didn't have much opportunity to see Judy in recent years, but we sure do have great memories. Most especially of "our" Matt's being best friends for so many years and all their antics! Your spirit lives on Miss Judy and we will think of you often.
