Judith was Amazing and had the hugest personality. Never Ever did Judith go a day without making you laugh or smile. The Love of her daughter Britton and Bill was unconditional and her friendship was a Blessing. Judith always checked on her Friends and Loved Ones never making it about her battle. Your Laughter and Smile will never be dimmed my Princess Warrior. Love You and see you again my Dear Friend.

Friends for more than 35 years, and although long distance separated us more the majority of those years, our close bond was everlasting. We had 'laugh out loud' fun every time we were together. So many wonderful times and great memories. Judy was a bright spot in the lives of all who knew her and kept the most positive outlook right to the end. I'm glad I got to see her a few times this past year. She's now an angel in heaven, resting peacefully. My love to Britton and Bill.
