While we will miss the kind and loving soul of Judy, her presence lives on. Every person she laughed with, every bingo buddy she played with, and every person she loved equally just because that's who she was - the ripples of her life spent caring about others continue to spread. THAT is a wonderous legacy. Miss Judy touched my heart like so many others. Hugs, Tina.
