So sad to hear of Judys passing. I had hoped to meet up with her in Maine some time. She was a very sweet and caring lady. Prayers for her family and her pups.

  Judy had a true love of life.   She was a precious treasure to us all.   Her care and her work was a testament to her devotion,hard work, and determination .   Her smile was infectious.   She loved her home, community, and all creatures on God's earth .   You shall be greatly missed .

I remember Judy well. Ruth Ann Bodys's thoughtful remarks accurately express my memories of her as well. G-d speed!

It is a good thing that the human heart is big enough and strong enough to support the loss of friends and family. It was a privilege to have shared time with Judy. Tom Coffman
