  1. From the very first time I met Judy,she made me feel at ease. As I got to know her, I found that she was one of those few people in life that really stand out. She was so quick-witted, intelligent, and had the best sense of humor . She was also as true to her family as a person could be. I will always miss Judy. But I know her energy is out there and it is all good! RIP my friend and sister-in-law. You will be missed by all those whose lives have been lucky enough to know you.

  2. Judy was a very sweet and loving friend. I have many great memories of Judy. Especially of when her brother and I moved back to Decatur from Oregon with our little baby girl Stephanie. We stayed with her and Don while we were looking for a residence of our own and she helped us in many ways. She had a great sense of humor and was a great cook and a real family person. She will be missed and has a place in my heart. :hearts:
