I just found out about Judy's passing yesterday. My deepest condolences to all of her family. She was so outspoken and frank and I loved that about her. I remember our last phone conversation as if it was just yesterday and makes me sad that she must have passed shortly thereafter. May she rest in peace.

To Norma, Cathy and all of Judy's family, I will be with you in my prayers and thoughts today. I wish I could be there. It was a joy to have been Judy's cousin and I will miss her.

While I'm sad she has left us, I know in my heart that she no longer in pain and is with our Vicky and Joe having the time of her life! I'm so going to miss our special time together on the phone, The cards she wrote to me over the years in her perfect handwriting. Our swapping of our favorite recipes. Our love for the family we created over the years. Judy always made me feel like I was a true daughter and I am forever grateful that she has been a part of my life!
