    Judy could make you laugh! She was afraid of heights, but I did not know about that, until she climbed the HUGE rocky terrain to the Delicate Arch of Arches NP. It was 103 degrees in the shade if you could find some. She also climbed a rope ladder hanging off the side of a cliff in Mesa Verde NP ( the only way out)! She was an excellent card/game player, and she could COOK! Love to all her family and friends.

    Although we only knew you for a few short ( too short) years, your enthusiasm for travel, cooking, cards, entertaining was infectious! What I will always remember you for was your bravery & willingness to try something new, not age, nor situation ever dampened your spirit. We will forever be grateful you came into our lives.

    Judy had a smile that we will never forget. She was so much fun to be around and her laugh was contagious. We are saddened by this news and she will be greatly missed.
