    Oh my gosh this surprised me so much. Just talked to Judy at Walmart. She was always so fun to work with, both Ben Franklin and Walmart. Bevin worked with Steven at Roadrunner. Seems we were family. Even went pine nut gathering together. Your Mother was always telling me about her family. I will miss her.

    Judy and I were friends in 6th grade, a year after the Sterling Public School was closed and the “Sterling kids” were sent to Manti Elementary. I remember her as a sweet and fun girl. In 7th or 8th grade Sally Madsen, Judy, and I auditioned for the class assembly as “Alvin and The Chipmunks”. Our moms made our chipmunk costumes and we feverishly rehearsed our pantomime of “The Chipmunk Song”. This memory came from somewhere inside my bank of memories when I read of Judy’s passing. It is a sweet memory, many thanks to Judy! I am happy to hear she has enjoyed a wonderful life and loving family.

    I have enjoyed your mother’s friendship for many years. Her death came as a shock to me because it hadn’t been long since visiting with her. I have enjoyed her children, especially Stacie when she was in the young women program. It was fun to see her with her two other musketeers and all the things they did together. May all of you be blessed and comforted at this special time.
