I had been trying to locate Judy to see how her aunt Mary was doing and what a shock to find out of Judy's passing. I had only met Judy 3 or 4 times here,in Cape Canaveral, but immediately felt à mutual friendship.
It is with great sorrow that I write this note to you. She was such an easy person to get to know and hard for me to believe she is gone. I definitely feel a great lost realizing I will not be able to see her again, in this life.
She had enough energy to go on forever but I guess SOMEONE else needed her too.
Please know I care and hope you all get through this tough time with love and closness for each other.
With love to you all, Sue Bassett

Judy was to be a force to be reckoned with. I only wish I could have had more encounters with her on Planting Island. She would always stop for a friendly conversation on her many walks around the island. Her face would light up when she would see my kids, it was so evident how she loved children and people in general. Her positive energy will be greatly missed. The island will not be the same without her. I know this sentiment is shared by many.
