My condolences to the family of my classmate.
Judy & I met when we were 23 years young in San Jose, California, and stayed the closest of friends (sisters). Once she moved to Ohio, then to PA, we continued our contact via phone on a regular basis, generally weekly. We were emotionally there for one another, sharing our tragedies, our joys, and everyday life. Judy spent the last years of her life in much pain from numerous surgeries, and it broke my heart. She adored her family and spoke frequently about how grateful she was to have her nephews in her life, and the deep love she felt for each of them. I’ll forever remember all that Judy did for me over the last 49 years (even from a far); way too much to mention. J I cannot imagine not being able to call Judy, to hear her voice, and share our feelings. Rest in peace my dear friend, I love you so much.
