George and family. So sorry for your loss. My memories of Judy go all the way back to SHS where we shared office duty and were hall monitors. We also worked together on the Y Womens board making Easter eggs and Judy provided a lot of the silk flowers we used to decorate the sugar eggs. I think it's a secret where they came from.Keeping you in my prayers during this most difficult time.
