Not sure what to say?

Poor Judy Willis. I hope all of the personal issues she held against tradition and normalcy are now at rest.

Brenda and Family,
I am so sorry for the loss of your dear Mother, and this dear soul. I remember the time Uncle Charlie and Aunt Judy watched me and my brother, Mark on the night my grandmother die as a favor to my Father and Mother. They were such a comfort to us as kids, who really did not fully understand what was happening until our parents returned for us with tears in their eyes.

Thank you for all you wrote. It sparked my memory and filled it with love for Aunt...

Brenda, Tom, and all family members; we have lost a truly great Galley. Judy had such an enormous spirit and love of life, she spread it to all of us that were around her. We share your loss, but hope that you will find comfort in the days ahead. Love you very much.

Brenda, what a beautifully written tribute to Mom. The love and light and laughter Judy showered me with, when I had the most wonderful year with you both, will always surround me. I haven't stopped feeling her love since the day we had to say goodbye all those years ago.

Loving you from far away but also feeling you both so close xxx

I love you Mom. Fly free beautiful Judy. I know that you are with your God who you loved so much and whilst I am so sad I didn't get...

Judy was our son's (John) babysitter until he was in school. She was loving--even letting him pin curl her hair. She was so creative and loving. You are in our prayers.

I was so lucky growing up w/Judy as a stepmother because of her acceptance & the inclusive feeling she showed to my brother & me during our weekend long visits. I remember lots of games in the evenings. Monopoly, Cribbage, Clue, The Marble board game, Cards, Skittle Bowl, Pool etc and the laughter. She would often start telling a story or joke and couldn't finish for awhile because she was so tickled. Once during dinner she told a joke & older brother blew food across the table....

Our last lunch and picture together in October!

Brenda, what a wonderful tribute to your mother! All of it so true! God be with you during this time and the days ahead. You know I loved her, too!
Grace and peace, Glenda

To the family, I am sorry to hear the news about your loss. May the God who "binds up the brokenhearted" and "comforts all who mourn" sustain your family during this challenging time. Isaiah 61:1,2 *
