  • My deepest sympathy to Victor and all of Judy’s family. I have been praying for Judy since the day she was diagnosed, every morning, as the Rosary is on the radio at 5:00 AM, on my way to work. I sincerely admired her courage and determination. Seeing her at family gatherings, enjoying the holidays and never complaining, made me realize how hard she fought for survival. She always had positive things to say and never dwelled on her illness. What an inspiration ! RIP, Judy, as you enter enter the Gates of Heaven !

  • So sorry to hear of Judy’s recent passing. I worked with her at Floating. After her diagnosis years ago I do admired her strength with each adversity she faced. I hope all the great memories you have will bring you the laugh or smile when needed most in the coming days and months
