    Bill and Family,
    I am very sad to hear of your loss. I lost my beloved Mom in 2010. My impression was that Judy, like my Mom, brought much joy and happiness to her family and friends. They never met in this life, but I think maybe they are enjoying each others company now.

    Judy and I worked the night shift together at the old Glover for many years. She was a wonderful nurse and always was full of tales about her family that she clearly loved so very much. May the strength that she had carry over to all of you as she would have wanted. May she rest in peace….her work here is done.

    Bill and family:
    I remember when I first met Judy at “Glover”. She was my go to girl in Cardiology. She was a great lady. I think heaven needed more nurses and she is one of the best.
    She has a very special place in heaven. Thinking of you.
