Linda and family, I am so sorry to hear about Judy. I have missed her dearly since the day she left us at Pleasant View. She was one of my favorites. We always have a good laugh talk about elvis oh how she loved elvis. How she would talk about the green bay packers. How she would get excited every sunday when you would come get her for church and take her to your house for the day. She enjoyed that so much. Every time I would walk in her apartment she lit up like a lightbulb, always a big smile and would always throw a kiss when I walked out. She was very enjoyable, Her smile would always make my day. God bless you and your family at this time of sorrow. My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family. May she live with us thru her memories that we have her.

No matter how much time we have to try to prepare our hearts, it still hurts so much when we have to let go. May you find comfort in the knowledge that your loved one is now free....and at peace. I know that it is hard to mix feelings of grief and relief but know that it is okay to feel both....the grief in your loss and the relief that your sister's pain and suffering is over. Thoughts are with you, LaVonne Brick
