Dear Family, I worked with Judy at the V.A. Medical Center when she was at the nursing home. She was such a joy to work with and was so kind to all of the patients and staff. We fondly called her radar because she somehow knew what we needed before we could even ask her. She helped me when my own father was a patient there and I have never forgotten her kindness. Tonya she talked of you often and loved you so. Hold on to those good memories, I know I will. Take care and God Bless.
