    I send my condolences to the entire immediate and extended family of my
    friend and classmate Judy. We grew up in the same neighborhood just around
    the corner from each other. I remember her family and her siblings very well.
    Whenever Judy’s name was mentioned I would always think back of a fun loving girl with a great smile and personality to match. I’m also sure as a loving mother, grandmother, and wife, she had no equal…
    RIP Judy, your friend Wally????
