    Our sincere condolences to your family from Ava, Evan, Eddie and Sarah. Judy was a caring, fun and sincere person. Our family was fortunate to have her in our lives. We spent quality time with her in Florida and in the summertime in Ohio to visit Grandpa Bob. She always greeted us warmly and opened up her home and her heart to us all. One of my favorite memories of her is walking up and down the beach in Florida with her poodle Coco. We were fast friends and talked about everything including the latest movie or Best Seller to read. I miss our friendship that blossomed over the years and appreciate all that she did for my father and my family. Her kindness and strength, her easy laugh, her genuine heart – qualities that she has surely passed on to her lovely daughters and their children. We will all miss her but trust that she’s a shining star or angel now in heaven just like she was here on earth. Love, Sarah
