Deepest sympathy on the loss of your mother. She was truly a good neighbor and friend when she lived at the condo in Highland Lakes. May she Rest In Peace. Joe Michalec and Pat Ruddy

I am so very sorry for the loss of your Mother. I adored Judy and will always remember her fondly for her love of birdwatching, reading, and love of Red Lobster and shrimp. I had the pleasure of meeting her when I worked at Independence House. She was always so appreciative of anything I did for her when she lived in the apartments. I must confess, I spoiled her with rainbow sherbet every chance I had. She will be dearly missed. I am very sorry for your loss, Amy, and to your sister as well.
