Dear Uncle Bill, Missy, and Keith:
I am so sorry to hear about Aunt Judy's passing. I always appreciated the way she made sure we were having a good time when we visited all of those summers growing up. She always made me feel welcome no matter what time of day or night it was. Judy's wonderful and warm personality is something I know you saw every day, but wanted you to know how much she touched my life even living so far away and not seeing her or all of you as frequently as I would have liked.
Take care of each other and the kids. I know that she will be greatly missed.

I was so sorry to hear about Aunt Judy. I have such great memories of her; especially from my childhood. I always loved to go "acroos the street" when visitng Grandma and Grandpa as I knew I would have fun. I always thought of her as one of the "fun aunts". Sine I found out about her passing, I have been thinking back to my childhood and remebering all the fun times of which there are many. Take care

Dear Uncle Bill, Missy, and Keith,

Just heard the terrible news today, sadly there are no words to describe how sorry I am for your loss. Like Christie and Lisa, I have so many great childhood memories of fun Aunt Judy, it's true that she always took the time to be sure we were having a good time. I also remember the baby shower she gave me when Patrick was born, it was so thoughtful. I will think of you during the coming days, wish I could be there.

Dear Bill, Missy, Keith & your families,
I just heard from Laura your sad news. I want you to all know you are in my thoughts and prayers. I always enjoyed talking with your mom...she always kept me updated with what was going on in Youngsville. So many fond memories spending the night over at your house/grandma's when you all moved in when we were kids.
Sending LOVE and HUGS to all of you,
