"Tammy, Fran, Gina, and Anne, Words are not adequate at this time. I am praying the God will be with you and carry you all through the grieving process. Judy was truly one of the most beautiful and loving women I have ever had the honor to know. I can hear her laugh now. Truly, she is in a better place, but to those left behind it leaves a heart bruised. She loved her girls dearly and I know she will keep a watchful eye in Heaven."
