My deepest sympathies to Judy’s family. I had the pleasure of doing Judy’s nails for sometime, although not in recent years. But I always looked forward to seeing her and spending time with her. She was a lovely woman with a kind heart, a sense of humor and offered sound advice on life many a time.  I know she is in her glory to be with God and her beloved Eddie. I am sure they are holding hands!
