I am so grateful for the time my family and I were able to spend with Judy over the years. She was very artistic and crafty and was always making something pretty that she could give to someone else. We have many beautiful candles and decorations she made that are displayed in our house. I enjoyed watching Jeopardy with her and she and I would team up and try to come up with the right answers before anyone else. She introduced me to watching tennis and Bob Ross! She was a good singer and had a beautiful voice, and she made the best chili dogs ever. Condolences to Paul, Anna, and the rest of the family. I wish I could be there to pay my respects in person. I will miss you Judy and am thankful that you were a part of our lives.
