Not sure what to say?

To all who knew Judy, I am her daughter in law, and was also her caretaker.

Most people who knew Judy may not have known, that for the last few years, she suffered from dementia and memory loss.

Perhaps you noticed that she no longer offered you rides or wanted to play bridge anymore, or that your phone calls and letters to her went unanswered. Maybe you thought that she was angry with you, moved away or didn't want your friendship anymore..

Please know...

Dave, thoughts and prayers to you! So sorry to hear about Judy passing! Would love to be able to get in touch with you.

Our heartfelt sympathy to all the men of the Ling family.
