I am so sorry! Know that I share your loss and hope you will find comfort in the memories that are yours to cherish, forever.❣️
My sincere condolences to Judy’s family. Please know that the joy in her heart that she shared with the wolves and the smiles, laughter, and kindness she shared with everyone will be forever remembered. Take comfort in knowing that God remembers her too. Isaiah 26:19; Psalms 37:29 (Isaiah 11: 6 The wolf will reside for a while with the lamb…)
I am just learning of Judy’s passing. She was my friend since 3rd grade and was in my wedding. We lost track of each other through the years and I was so happy when we finally reconnected. My deepest condolences and my prayers are with your family.
