With deep sadness we bid farewell to a wonderful and loving person.  I haven't seen Judyann since highschool, but I keenly remember her kind welcoming smiles and sweet greetings.  She was a jewel, and will be sorely missed.  Go well into the Angels Arms, and be at Peace.

Judy lived on my same street in high school, we had many conversations on our walk home from the bus stop.  She was so grounded in her thoughts and ways, I remember her being just one of the nicest persons I knew.  Rest In Peace Judy❣️
