Very sorry to hear the news of Judy passing. I worked with her for many years at AT&T in Hannibal. We had many good times there.
Judy even bought a car from me.
I would like to send my sympathy to her family and friends.

Susan, Chanda and all Judy’s family,
So sorry and schocked to learn of Judy passing.
We had not visited in some time , (distancing) I had no idea of her illness. We had seen one another passing in our cars.
I hope the brief illness spared her of much discomfort.
She was a friendly soul I will miss seeing.
My Sincere Sympathy,

Dear Chandra,

Please accept my heartfelt expression of sympathy at the passing of your mother Judy.

She and I were very close friends in high school. Life took us down different paths, but Judy was always in my heart. She was, indeed, a loving person, and I have fond memories of our time together.

My prayers for Judy include prayers for you and Judy's grandchildren; may love, peace, and joy be yours.

Dear Susan,

I write here a special message of sympathy to you on the passing of your beloved sister.

Just as I remember so fondly my high school days enlivened and enriched by my friendship with Judy, I remember you as well.

May you find comfort in knowing that there are souls in San Luis Obispo who not only remember your family but who feel a strong connection.

With loving gratitude for the gift of friendship,
Claudia Young Devaux Larson

Judy and I were close friends years ago after her divorce. We met while both members of parents without partners in Waterloo, IA. We spent a lot of time together back then, as my two daughters were close to hers in age. I moved a lot and we lost touch. I'm sorry to hear of her passing.
