No one will ever compare to my Aunt Judy. She was the epitome of Class, Strength, Grit and Humor beyond compare.

Judy and my late husband Dr Donald Yurdin knew each other long and well. Our social lives connected throughout many years. In our later years we played a weekly bridge game. She was special. Uncomplaining and loved by us. My deepest sympathy to her family.
