So sorry for your loss. Judy was always tying up loose ends in a complicated seed business. She had such remarkable patience for others. I always enjoyed working with her as she helped us ship seed all over the world.

My deepest sympathy to you, Brian, Rebecca and families for the loss of your mother Judy. I also am sorry to hear about your Dad´s passing. Your Mom was a good friend to my Mom, Carma Tucker. who passed last December. I am quite sure they became friends working at DeKalb Ag and continued that friendship for many, many years. Even in their later years, they would get together for lunch at Taco Bell and Culver´s. After my mom moved into Lincolnshire Place (memory care) in 2018, your parents brought and shared a Taco Bell lunch with her. They had drifted apart somewhat due to health issues, but I shared a nice text with your Mom when I notified her of my Mom´s passing. Just to share who I am and some memories. I know this must be a very sad year for you. losing both of them. Unfortunately, the sadness may not go away, but I pray you find comfort in knowing how much they both loved you and holding your family memories close. God Bless. May they both Rest In Paradise.
