    I'm sending my love and prayers to you and your family during this difficult time. One of my favorite
    scriptures that is often used during times of sorrow is from Psalm 30:5 - "Weeping may endure for a
    night, but joy cometh in the morning". Know that God is with you always, especially during this season
    of sorrow.

    My deepest sympathy to all Judy's children and family. I worked with Judy for several years at
    International Harvester and we became good friends. I did lose contact with her when the company
    left the area. I will always remember her as a sincere person and what a wonderful mother she was
    to her children. You were all blessed to have her in your lives. God bless you and know that you are
    in my prayers.

    The loss of a mother is the end of an era. Be comforted by your memories of her love for you. Be
    hopeful that she is now free of all pain and suffering and rejoices with God for all eternity. Peace be
    with you all. Michael

    I want to send the kids my very deepest condolences and prayers. JR &
    I go back to high school with Bob & Judy. So many memories when our
    married lives were spent together, camping, fishing, playing cards,
    staying up all night talking. All while raising and adding to, our families.
    May God Bless my dear friends, tell JR hi for me. All together again.
    Love and Prayers
