Judy and I had been friends since grade school. Sure will miss her.

I also had been friends since grade school. Miss Judy and Tami so much. RIP both of you.

Judy was a special gal -- a high school buddy of mine. I will certainly miss seeing her on my visits back to Wooster. Our sympathies to her family.

So sorry for your loss. Prayers for your family Tom and Cindy.
