I send my love to the family. I'm heartbroken. She was my very first acting teacher at The Actors and Directors' Lab in New York and directed me in two plays here in Los Angeles. I currently act and use much of her teachings at my acting studio. Judy was so dear to me and I'm so sorry that she is no longer here. I loved her a lot.
