  1. Judith was my hero. She loved her husband and family until the end. She never said an unkind word about them and loved them unconditionally. A fighter until the end. Heaven just got a warrior. Prayers and positive thoughts to the family. Loss of a wife, a mother, and a grandmother is not easy.

  2. Dear Dave, Terry and I are so sorry about Judy! We're here for you whatever you need! We love you and yours in our thoughts and prayers!

  3. Dave and family, I'm so sorry to hear of Judy's passing. Bev has kept me in the loop the last few years and I knew she had been sick. My sincere condolences and prayers are with you.
