"I can't believe it's been five years since you were with us. So much has happened, and there's so much I wish you could see. (Of course there's plenty you'd be glad you didn't have to witness, too.) I love you and I miss you, always."

"Today would have been your 72nd birthday, and the 5th since you've been gone. It's hard to believe so much time has passed. I wish I could share wth you all the things that have changed since your death. I can only imagine what you'd make of President Trump, just for starters. I haven't been to visit your tree and your bench in a bit over a year, but I make cairns for you everywhere I travel, and I'm posting a few from this year today on your birthday. I know you can't read these words, but it makes me feel better to type them anyway. I love you, mom!"

"So much has changed in the time you've been gone, and yet I can hardly believe four years has passed. I feel like just yesterday I could have picked up the phone to talk about all the things that have happened. I will always love you and miss you."

"I  miss you every day. Today Will and I walked in the Navy yard, then visited your tree and bench, then toured the Eastern State Penitentiary, where a guard told a funny story you would have loved. I also learned that you took Lottie, Lisa and Rich there for Halloween one year. Then Aunt Susan, Uncle Harold, Barb, and Mark had dinner with Will and me at Downeys and we remembered you with stories. You are with me every day, but I miss you always."

"Miss you, Judy. It's so hard to believe that I have not been with you for 2 years. I am writing this from my new iPhone 6, and since you were the "Apple Queen" I can't help but think that you would be happy about that."

"I miss you so much. It's so hard to believe a whole year has gone by. I think of you every day. As we approach Thanksgiving, one year later, I'm grateful to have been your daughter, and so grateful for your life. The world is not the same without you. I love you."

This tribute was added by Donna Diosa on 15th November 2013

"Thinking of you and missing you Judy, as it's hard to believe it's been one year ago that you left us all. Tonight after work Shirley and I are mtg up at one of your favorite spots "Art After 5" & how appropriate as we had so many FUN times "Painting the Town Red" together on Fridays after work! Take care my Very Good Friend, until we meet again! With Love, Donna"

"Thinking of my sweet sister on her birthday.  I miss you, but I am so glad that you are not suffering! You never complained through it all. I know that I could not have been that way. Your bench looks beautiful and I love benches. Harold makes fun of me, but I stop at every bench I can. I think it is so peaceful to sit on a bench and look and hear what's going on around."

"Today is our first Mothers Day without you, and I miss you more than ever. I know we weren't big on celebrations, and were rarely together on Mothers Day, but today is so different without you. I love you!"

"Dear Judy, you were fun, you were amusing, you were adventurous, you taught us many things, and you always made us smile. But above all you were brave. You let nothing deter you from your goal of beating the illness that took you from us. Nor did you let it in any way diminish that light that you allowed to shine for us."

"Happy Thanksgiving!  You are in our thoughts today!"

"This Thanksgiving I am grateful for the life of my mother, and for the support and love of all those whose lives touched hers and were somehow changed. I am enormously saddened by losing her, but I am thankful that a corner of the world was richer for her presence, her quirkiness, and all she brought with her. It has been one week since she passed. This Thanksgiving is for her."

"Judy, I am having trouble finding the right words to pay tribute to you. I love you. I miss you. Thanks for being a fantastic aunt. You helped me discover who I am and how to be. You could always show me how to tilt my perspective and see things differently. You had charm and grace and spirit that brightened my life. Blessings"

"Judy, you were such an amazing aunt.  You had a great way of putting everyone at ease.  You were the most empathetic person, you could always relate and understand.  I have many memories of you but your bright smile and postive loving spirit shine the brightest in my mind.  You taught me to fight and persevere.  There is not enough room to explain what you have meant to me.  I  Love you"

"We are very heartbroken at Judy's passing and are very sorry that we can't be with you during this difficult time.  I remember the first time I met her at the Imagine It! Museum. We shared a conversation about jewelry. We will always remember holidays and special occasions spent with her. She was a very generous and kind-hearted woman. Our prayers and thoughts are with you and your family."

"I only had the pleasure of meeting Judy once in person. My wife and I met her and Elizabeth for lunch on South Street, and it was a wonderful and patently entertaining meal. I regret that I didn't have the pleasure of more of her company, and the world is less charming for her passing. Love to Elizabeth and the family."

"Judy, you will be sorely missed.  It did much for morale to have you  take on seemingly intractable tasks and fix them with such good humour and warm smile.  Your memory endures with me, even as full retirement finds me working from home."

This tribute was added by J Strauss on 18th November 2012

"I was profoundly saddened by the news that your mother had passed away.   The last time I saw her, probably two years ago, she was in good spirits and looked well, so the e-mail from Donna about her death came as a shock.  I am horribly upset that I did not know the gravity of her illness, since I would have wanted to spoke with her.  I am sure that you know that I so enjoyed the many years at Pe"

"Judy was a real sweetheart. I will always remember her willingness to help out on so many projects. More than anything, her ability to tackle any challenge with a sense of humor was a joy. She was also so proud of her children and grandchildren!! We will miss her very much."

"Your mom may be gone, but will live inside you always. She lives on through you, Becky and the boys. The sadness is so great now but hope that soon it can be replaced with smiles when you think of the love you share and good times you all had together.  I know it meant the world to have you by her side these last 6 months."

Love you..."
