Know that you are not alone in your grieving as your mother was a beautiful person and touched many people including me in her lifetime. I will miss your mother and know that my life is a little emptier now that she is gone. I always called her beautiful lady and now she is a beautiful angel watching over you. The most important part of her will always be with you. God bless you girls and your families at this time.

    Most of my life I didn’t know much about my aunt Judy other than she was a nice lady and I liked her. But when my father passed away (her brother) about 6 years ago, she was there for me whenever I needed her…she helped me through the whole funeral process, without her I would’ve been a complete mess. After that, her and I started talking on a regular basis, the more I talked to her, the more I wanted to know. She was super interesting and funny. I suddenly regretted all the years I could’ve gotten to know her as I grew up, but I’m sure glad I had a few good years to be her friend…Thank Auntie Judy for being there every time I needed you and I feel honored to have gotten to know you even a little bit. You’re gone too soon, but God must’ve needed you elsewhere…I promise I will never, ever forget you and I will love you forever and a day…xoxoxo

    Jessica and Cassie….please accept my most sincere sympathies for the loss of your dear Mom. Judy was a friend of my sister Cassie Anderson…and spent a lot of time in our home when I was young. She was always delightful and kind to me….I remember her as a welcome laughing presence…and will continue to do so. May she be somewhere lovely now. Linda

    Dear Jessica and Cassie,
    Judy and I were best friends at ACA and when we reconnected in 2010 it was like no time had passed… as I know it will be the next time we meet. But for now, I will miss your mother – her generosity, grace and wisdom and especially her wry laughter and sense of humor.
    Know you are all in my thoughts and prayers.
    Margaret (Peggy)

    Dear Jessica and Cassie and families,
    Time seemed to stand still for a brief time because I reconnected with Judy. I and Margaret “Peggy” Losinski shall always think of her as our best friend and you, both, forever as one of the happiest
    memories of my life.
    Cassie (the 1st)
