     Judy was very passionate about being with her family.  She loved having all her family at her home and her “pool parties”.  Judy loved music and the many family & friends who played just for her.  Her most precious gift was bringing family & friends together and creating all their most treasured memories to hold in everyone’s hearts.  She always had “room for one more” and never knew a stranger or turned anyone away.  She taught all her family & friends that being together, sharing, as well as taking care of each other and all who need it were and are the meaning of being here and having your best life.  She felt her family was her greatest accomplishment and was intensely proud of them and loved to share that with everyone.  Judy loved hard, true, and forever.  Her life and legacy will be remembered always by those whose lives she touched.
