  1. A cherished childhood friend will never be forgotten. Judy’s High School Year Book quote reads: .No two human beings have made, or ever will make exactly the same journey in life.. I am honored to have shared part of my journey with Judy’s. Judy’s spirit and energy has moved on to another place in the Universe. I know when I see this spirit, and feel this energy, however it presents itself, I will smile and feel the joy and happiness Judy brought to everyone she met. My prayers reach out to Ed, Mrs. Fogg, Gary, and all those Judy loved. Tommy
