Judy, as the selfish individuals we are we are so saddened by the loss of you here on earth with us. I can see the ever loving smile on your face and I know you are dancing the happiest, painless dance of your life in Heaven with your Mom and all those that have preceded you in their journey to Heaven. Please hug your Mom, especially my husband and everyone in Heaven with you that means so much in all of our Hearts. I will forever hold the picture perfect smile that you wore of your face and know how happily, joyfully and painlessly you are enjoying that special dance in Heaven. With Much Love, Mary Castle-Horne.

My heart is heavy knowing that my loved ones are hurting due to the loss of a mother, grandmother, sister & aunt. Aunt Judy will always hold a special place in my heart and memory. She was a constant in my life growing up and mothered me like her own....many times people would mistakenly think I was her daughter (& Laurel’s big sister). While I take comfort in knowing she is no longer suffering in pain, I will miss her being a part of our lives. Her smile and laugh is forever etched in my mind. I pray comfort & peace for all her loved ones, especially her children, Laurel & Bryan. God bless, Kelly
