  1. I am really saddened by my friend Judys passing . She was a loyal friend! She sat on my board of directors and we all had a good time. I can always remember her saying we have to wrap this up because I have to go and watch Seinfeld . I missed her funeral not by choice . I had back surgery and it caused me to miss it . I was there in spirit my friend .
    Judy will be missed but her personality , laughter, kindness and loyalty will never be forgotten !❤️
