  • I know words will not ease your sorrow, but I wanted you to know I thought a lot of Judy. We did not see each other every day at work, but if I needed anything at work Judy was always willing to help anyway she could.
    I know when Mr. Starr was here she kept his working day from being so hectic. Over the years Judy was always a hardworker and tried to always do everything the right way.
    Watching her struggle with cancer the last few years showed what strength she had. I often told her that I did not think I would be able to keep going as she was doing if I was in her shoes.

  • Although I did not know Judy very well, she always had kind word and a smile for me in the morning. She will be missed.
