"Beaitufully said Joe Douek! Remembering my complex and passionate aunt Judy on her 68th birthday. I think of her often lastely since adopting a kitten a few months ago. Never had a cat and never really understood why she was so taken with them and their "personalities", but now...I get it! Who knew! May you rest in peace Judy and know you are in our hearts and minds always."

I remember fondly your musical talents, your wry wit, your way of expressing your opinions and  emotions--letting us know with immediacy and without reserve how you felt about things. I remember your courage in forging on in life despite adversity. You have a special place in my heart and in the collective memories of our family and of your community.  Glad to celebrate your birth."

"Judy was a wonderful aunt and I'm so happy about this tribute site. All my life I knew Judy as someone who truly cared about others. We loved her: my grandparents, my mother, my father, my siblings, and I up here in Canada. Her memory is a blessing. The pictures of Judy uploaded to this site are incredible, and Lakmé is the perfect piece to convey the music in her soul. She loved life."

"Although I didn't know Judy personally, as I peruse Judy's memorial website, the weight & magnitude of this tragic end really hits home...as a fellow Oakland & Maxwell Park neighbor...with my 2-year old next to me on the couch feeding her baby doll & my 6 month-old in the kitchen with mommy making dinner...the life reflections still hit very close to home.  We love you Judy & miss you."

"My dear, sweet, brilliant, sad Judy how I miss you! Since I met you by the door to our first MA class in 1971/ '72 I have admired and loved you as a very very special lady. We shared a love for literature, music, opera and nature. You were so good at so many things! I remember I parallel parked with you in the passenger seat turning the steering wheel and me pressing the gas!  What a loss!"

"Judy was a beautiful and brilliant woman who led a rich and fascinating life. She spoke five (six?) languages and read voraciously. We had long, wonderful talks about everything under the sun. She was extremely chic, and shopping with her was a lot of fun. She had great style, wit, and personality. Judy was *not* a "vanilla" kind of girl. More like smoked paprika!"

This tribute was added by Carson Duper on 3rd August 2013

"I am so pleased and impressed to see the outpouring of love shown by Judy's friends and neighbors at her candlelight vigil. Eric, you did well organizing this sad but fitting tribute. As we all know, Judy could be pretty contentious, and it's great to see the great many people who honored and respected her, knowing the inherent goodness in her heart. I will truly miss her."
