I can’t believe it’s been 9 years! Ari was home last weekend and Ana and I had chance to have a nice long catch up talk. You’d be so proud of both of your kids. I was looking through the pictures in your gallery and I must say you really rocked the short hair! You’d like our new dog, JayJay. He’s a big mush of a Pit Bull. I still miss you, R.I.P.

My thoughts still wander towards you at times as our memory of you never fades. Rest well my dear...

Judi, I only met you one time. That was a Adam Greenspan's wedding, in California, on July 4th. I was so impressed with you. We talked for what seemed like hours. I will never forget you, and your warm charming way of meeting a stranger and making them feel like long lost friends. It is too bad you were taken from earth before we could meet again.
Posted by Adrian Lopez on January 4, 2018
Happy Birthday my dear. Rest well knowing your children and I, though missing you, are all doing well...

My Dear Judi, Today is the 6th anniversary of you leaving us. Never a day goes by without your mother and I talking about how much we miss you. Our hearts ache without your presence. There is a hole in our lives that can never be filled.. All our love forever.
Dad

My dear friend Judi. You are my inspiration to keep doing what I'm doing. I just made 5 years cancer free and I thank you for all of your positive messages and uplifting outlook you always shared with me. You are my hope, my friend and my blessing. I am so grateful that we had the time we had as "new" friends and sisters in the fight of ovarian cancer. My heart hurts to think that such a beautiful ray of sunshine of a person was taken from all of us so early on. I'm sure heaven has a new glow that it didn't have before you went home. I miss you my dear friend. I love you and I thank you for continuing to be my inspiration in this life. Every day is a gift and in the hardest of times I cherish it.

Dearest,
Another year passes, yet your memory lives on in your children, your mom and dad, your good friends and in my heart.....
Posted by Jim Gerke on May 22, 2015
I made a promise 4 years ago that I couldn't keep. Steve & I promised we'd get together every year in your memory. Losing Steve just a few months later has left me to do this on my own. Great memories that bring a smile. A true inspiration on how to celebrate life.

Ariella Lopez with Judi Greenspan Lopez
I miss you every day, but I know you are still smiling down at me, proud of all of my accomplishments and looking out for me every step of the way. I couldn't have asked for a better mother and best friend to have had in my life. I have so many wonderful memories with you that I will always cherish deep in my heart. Thank you for being such a big part of making me who I am today, I couldn't be happier.

Happy Birthday Mom. I love and miss you very much. And I will be making chicken with rice and mushroom sauce in honor of your birthday!
Posted by Bernard Greenspan on January 4, 2014
Judi, Today is the 3rd birthday without you. For Mom and I you are always with us, never left us, always in our hearts and minds. We feel your presence just because of who you are, a caring, compassionate person. Who by your presence always lit up the room. You are the person around things revolve.
Posted by Bernard Greenspan on December 1, 2013
Judi, This is the 3rd Thanksgiving without you. There was an empty chair at the table-yours. We all missed your soup, your smile and your beautiful smiling face.. Each day is never the same without you.

It's been over a year since your gone. I can remember how fantastic you were to my son, Kevin. He complimented you and talked about you all the time about how he liked to be with you. He said you were optimistic, cheerful, and encouraged him with his schoolwork.
Posted by Kevin Block on May 22, 2012
Mrs. Lopez,

You were a fantastic woman, strong at heart. I didn't understand your cancer that well at the time, but from what I saw, you sure as anything didn't let it keep you down. You were a role model to any and all people to come in contact with you and I will continue to think of you.
Posted by Jim Gerke on May 22, 2012
A year since you left us, and I still really can't find the words to express how I feel, and how wonderful a friend you were.  I hope that Adrian, Ariella and Aaron are finding a way to cope. I think about them and your Mom & Dad often.
Posted by Pam Ponte on May 22, 2012
Dear Judi ~ I will always remember your smile and know that you're looking down and smiling on everyone who knew you. Rest in Peace my dear friend.
Love,
Pam, Pete and Vincent Ponte

Judi and bowling

Shared by Pamela White on August 13, 2011

I met Judi when she joined my bowing team.  She was always so upbeat and positive.  We helped each other when we were struggling.  If we didn't win she would always say "well we will get them next game."  And if it was the last game she would always say "we will do it next week."  When she was not feeling well she always managed to come to bowling.  I would tell her it wasn't that important but she would say I love bowling and I don't want to miss it.  She inspired us all.  The Monday Morning Ladies and the Open Practice league will be starting soon and I will miss my partner sooo much.  I know that she is there with me though and reminding me not to get too upset and just try harder next time.  I love you and miss you Judi.  Pam White

I remember first meeting Judi at Paramus Park's Pathway Bakery in 1978.  She was a fun, vibrant person to be with.  I remember going to her house in River Edge for get together's, playing cards, sitting with friends and  swimming in the pool.  I was with her the night she met her future husband, Adrian. My husband and I attended her wedding and visited her when she gave birth to Ariella.  She had my bridal shower at her house and was my maid of honor at my wedding.  She was also at my baby shower when I was expecting my son, Vincent and she even was at my son Vincent's Christening a month before her son Aaron was born.  I also remember being at Ariella's bat Mitzvah and even though we lost touch over the years and got back in touch via Face book and she finally told me that she had been sick, still talking to her on Face book, I could still see her smile, and hear the laughter in her voice.  She will be forever remembered and I will always missed her.  Love to her family ~ Adrian, Ariella, Aaron, her parents  and the rest of her family.  This is not good bye ~ but so long till we see each other soon.  Love, Pam, Pete & Vincent Ponte.

 Kevin, my son met Ari when she was was 15, and Ari is still at school with Kevin in Georgia. She introduced him to her parents. Kevin came home and said he adores Ari and she has such great parents, Judi and Adrian and a fun brother. Kevin was close with the whole family. He loved to learn how to cook with Judi who cooked very well. Boys at 16 don't love to cook but he loved cooking with Judi. Kevin spent alot of time at Ari's house. They are wonderful people and there was so much fun in their household.  Judi was always optimistic.
