Our sincere sympathies to your family in the loss of Judith. I ( Florence ) am one of the cousins. Your mother and I used to spend a fair amount of time together when we were kids. As we got older we did not see each other very often as our lives went in different directions. Still I remember my slightly older cousin who always looked great and who always had time to talk to me. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Kae (Wentzell) Webster
So very sorry to read of Judy’s passing. She mentioned in her Christmas letter that she was waiting until after the holidays to find out the results of some tests and we had not been in touch since. Judy and I went to LRHS, roomed together in Truro during Teacher College days and did our practicums together in the Liverpool schools. Our paths went different ways but we did keep in touch yearly and then we spent a fun weekend during the 50 year reunion of NSNC in Truro. She loved life, had praise for her family and was always so proud of your accomplishments. To Kelly, Kim and Father Wayne my deepest sympathy. Cherish the time you spent together and allow your memories to help in your healing.
