  1. Jenn and family,

    I am sorry to hear about the passing of your mother. She was always kind to me, especially at times when many people were not. God bless you all and know she will still be looking out for her family; just from heaven above.

    Love,

    A

  2. Judy was a loving and caring woman and I was lucky to have known her and her family. I always looked forward to hearing from her every Christmas growing up long after I left her daycare. She will be missed.

    Love

  3. I always admired Judy’s sincerity and her endless capacity for love and understanding. She truly loved her girls, and even though I am just a friend of them, she made sure I felt loved every time I walked through the door. She always wanted to know how I was doing, and I always looked forward to her witty remarks. Some of most famous “words of wisdom” will continue to elicit inspiration, laughter and love from those who were lucky enough to know her.

  4. Anne and family,
    Malik and I are so sorry for the passing of Judy. She will truly be missed. We wish you all strength during this time. We love you, Anne.
    Love,
    Christine anf Malik Selmani

  5. My husband, Steve, and I are so saddened at Judy’s passing. We’ve known each other for over 50 years. She was one of a kind – a good friend and wonderful wife and mother. She fought a long battle with cancer, but always kept her sense of humor about her situation. Heaven definitely gained another angel, but the others better watch out – she’ll be the favorite. Love you Judy.
    Steve and Rosemary Chamberlin
