Rod, Ben, Cindy I have always had fond memories of your family. I feel some of your pain knowing you will not be together physically, but memories persist and give us comfort. Treasure those memories, embrace those memories and they will give you comfort. My thoughts of Judy with Pearl, Fay, and Marlene in our kitchen and our family in their kitchen are happy memories I revisit. The chance meeting at the Bratwurst festival and family reunions I revisit as well. Judy will be missed, but relish your memories.
Rodney & family, our sincere condolences.

From my family to you and yours, I wish to send my heart felt condolences. Judy was a joy in her life and she had done sooo many wonderful things, particularly raising a wonderful family. When I learned of her passing, what instantly popped into my head was remembering her laughter. Her legacy lives on in and through her children, grandchildren, and you Rodney.
