I am so sad to hear of Judy's passing.  She was part of our little group of friends & always happy.  She had such a great personality - I remember her laughing so much.  A very happy, positive light has been put out crying.  But, she'll never be forgotten.  broken heart.  Save a place in Heaven for me, dear Judy.
