To Judy's sons and their families

My deepest sympathy.
I considered Judy a friend, and have many memories of shared times at St. John's and visiting Judy and Glen at their home. Both were strong, sincere people with twinkles in their eyes and a wonderful sense of humor.
Judy was confirmed with my husband, Bob, and they attended school together.
I truly admire the courage of both Glen and Judy as they met each challenge with faith and just went on to a new day. My heart is sad, but I believe they are sharing a wonderful new life together with other loved ones
Sincerely, Kaaren Schwarz.

I am so sorry to hear of your loss of your Mother. I briefly met Judith, but heard many stories about her, all of then saying what a wondeful woman she was in life. May she rest in peace. Saying prayers for the entire family.
