Lyle, Tina and Jeri, I am so sorry about Judy. She was very much loved by everyone she ever met. I know for one was my family. You all were the best neighbors we could have and my Mom always talked about you all. Katie carried on that tradition and looked forward to Judy's Christmas cards. Thanks so much for just being the sweet person you were to my family. I will pray for you all to have the peace that only God can give. They are all pain free and probably catching up.
