I, too, was deeply saddened to just learn about Judy's passing. She was such a warm, intelligent, creative, and joyful person. We should all strive to be more like her. I worked with her some years back at Bon Appetit. Was remembering her fondly just now, googled her name and was so sorry to read her obituary. My heart goes out to her family in sympathy for their loss. Her spirit lives on with them, and all those whose lives she touched.

I am very upset about this. I have just learned about Judy's passing. She was a sweet person and devoted mother. RIP Judy, I think of you often.

Dear Bill, I too have thought of Judy every day. I miss her so much and when I think about her I cry since there is a real void in my life. Especially thinking about 8/13 and this time last year when she was so sick yet so brave. Her wishes were to be with her family in any way she could be and she would have done anything medically possibly to help her live. I am not sure I could have been so strong. Judy never let her pain and discomfort get in the way of her last months. She never complained but was optimistic and determined. But life is not fair, and she was taken from us. You, Patrick and Henry have her spirit within and that is how life is passed on. Linda and Ken also have Judy within.. In only that way do I feel comfort. She meant so much to me but I have to rationalize this tragedy in some way. She touched my life in so many ways that I cannot express. Maybe there is a reason, but I guess I won't know until I join her up in heaven if I am so Joan Freedman

Judy's birthday is next week and it is almost a year since her passing. I really don't believe a day goes by without her popping into my thoughts. She remains with me this way. I can never let her go. My thoughts are with Bill, Patrick and Henry as this difficult time of year presents itself.

Judy, I remember when my mother, Holly, was a nanny for you and Bill, you two and the boys became our family as well. When I heard the news of your passing it broke my heart. We wanted to come see you guys again but I'm sure we will. We love and miss you very much . Rest easy. One day we will meet again .

I first met Judy when she went into advertising in NYC. She briefly worked at DDB. The same ad agency where I worked. Her job was not challenging enough and she left for advertising sales and Bon Appetit. Luckily one of my accounts did business with that magazine. Judy was the salesperson assigned to the business. We were able to bond and regularly keep in touch. Not only did we enjoy business get-togethers, we also maintained a personal friendship. Two single NYC working gals looking for Mister Right. Judy became very friendly with Bob Jeffrey who also worked at DDB, formed his own agency and ultimately made it big at JWT. Bob took Judy to many functions until she met Bill Meade. She told me she was falling for Bill and he appeared to be Mister Right indeed. It wasn't all that easy getting a commitment. On one occasion she couldn't reach him and decided to go over and wait on his apartment stoop for him to return. We laughed together about the incident which turned out fine for Judy. They became very committed to each other and had a beautiful loft wedding, each writing their own vows to one another. They remained in NYC for quite a while. Bill traveling. Judy working and worrying about Bill when he was out of town. Her anxiety was a discussion we often had. They then bought a lovely home in Montrose, NY, previously owned by Sally Jesse Raphael as I recall. Advertising sales for Judy was waning and Judy decided to reinvent her vocation and go into design. She also desperately wanted children. This was something she and Bill decided to take charge of and they went to Nevada to a clinic that aided Judy in getting pregnant. This was so like Judy. She took charge of making her life special. The result was that Bill and Judy were blessed with twin boys, Patrick and Henry. Several years later they moved back to NYC. The twins entered NYC grade school and for the first time were separated and placed in different classes. I met Judy for lunch that week and she relayed how the boys missed each other. At recess they met and hugged, exclaiming, "Bro miss you! During her years in design Judy created her own holiday greeting cards with photos of the boys. It was a joy to receive them and realize how Judy's creativity was excelling. She was already designing her wardrobe. She always looked so stylish. She loved Max Mara coats and was stunning in each one she owned. Many of us wanted to look exactly the same and a coworker went as far as to purchase the same coat one year. Hey, Judy I mentioned, that's one of the sincerest forms of flattery. I remember when she was diagnosed with her cancer. I begged and prayed she would be able to fight this as she so masterfully had fought all obstacles in her life. Unfortunately that was not the case. Too young, too quickly, too soon Judy was taken from all of us who loved her so dearly. I will always have so many positive thoughts of you, my Dearest. May you internally rest in peace.

Like my classmates, I have nothing but wonderful memories of Judy. She was the girl with the big smile and even bigger heart. There is always a special place for the people who accepted and loved us through the awkward adolescent years. The fun, laughs, silliness, tears, and angst we all shared are special to me. My sincerest sympathy to Bill, Patrick, and Henry. I can only imagine the depth of her love for you and hope that it is a comfort to you.

Dear Judy,
For the past forty years we have stayed connected. I was able to visit you in Atlanta right after your family moved there and again after college when we were both working girls. You later moved up to New York City and were were hanging out all the time! We even went on a ski vacation to Canada one winter.

After I got married and moved up to Westchester County we lost touch, but not for long! Some years later I turned around at Premier Athletic Club in Montrose and there you were. You had gotten married and you and Bill were living two miles away from me.

We again had several years of hanging out...lunches,dinners and a Christmas party in that amazing house on College Hill Road. I watched you blossom being pregnant with Patrick and Henry and remember visiting you at Hudson Valley Hospital after they were born. As the boys grew into toddlers, the "city girl" realized the country was not for her and you guys moved back to Manhattan.

We kept in touch but it wasn't until this past February that I finally got down to the city and we spent the day together. I will cherish that day. We caught up on all our kids, the husbands, friends and family. It was a beautiful winter day and we took a stroll on Riverside Drive. We promised to get together soon.

We will always be connected in my heart and memories. And as it has always been, we will turn around and see each other again.
Love, Cathy

I heard the unfortunate news of Judy's passing right before our 40th high school reunion. Even though I hadn't seen Judy since graduating high school, I felt very saddened. I had to smile thinking of Judy with her curly hair and infectious smile. I have a vision of her in her Leader's Corp jacket laughing at herself for some awkward thing she's just done or said. She was a real sweetheart and will be sorely missed. My condolences to her husband and twin boys who lost their wife and mother way too soon.
