  7. Farewell my friend, you have left my life, but you’ll never leave my heart ❤, your countless deed of compassion, kindness, love for your family and your faith in the Lord. May your soul find eternal peace.

  8. CandleImageI was never able to get to know Judy personally, but her son Tom and I went to school together from 2nd grade through graduation. I did get to see Judy at school functions, and witnessed her kindness and love for her family.

    With that said, I do believe I know Judy in knowing Tom. He’s always had a kind and welcoming heart, has never had a hard heart, and has looked for the good in life and in people. A son is a good reflection of his mother’s spirit, and Tom has reflected that his mother’s spirit is golden.

    Sending my thoughts to Tom and Judy’s family. May good memories and the meaningful moments shared with Judy help carry you in this time of loss.
