    My dear coworker and friend, Judy. I am so heartbroken that you are gone. It still doesn’t seem real. You still had so much spunk and strength in you. I can’t believe I have to goodbye to you today. I’m so glad that our last conversation was a positive one and that you told me you loved me. I will never forget you.

  8. Rita Casey says:

    I was very sad to hear of Judy’s passing. Although it has been years since I have seen her, I do remember her fondly. As a child our mothers were friends. I remember Judy as a fun loving young teenager, drum majorette and simply ecstatic about Elvis. I remember watching Elvis on the Ed Sullivan show for the very first time at their home in Lowell. I was 7 and Judy just couldn’t contain herself when Elvis appeared. I at 7 years old couldn’t understand what all the fuss was about. Please accept my sincere sympathy for your loss.

  9. Barbara Nardone says:

    I am so saddened to hear of Judy’s passing. She was a sweet vivacious person and always a pleasure to be around. I have many memories of chatting with her and her animated smiling face.
    She will surely be missed by the family she was so dedicated to and proud of. I am sure she is “Up There” having Elvis paged right now. Good luck Elvis! Please accept my sincere sympathy and heartfelt wishes that wonderful memories will help ease the pain of your great loss.
