To the family of Judy,
  I was very sad to read of Judy's death in the paper.We were good friends and co-workers for many years.I went with Judy when she opened the Hair Hut and stayed until she sold it.I have many fond memories of all the good times we had at work and outside of work with her and her family.Loved her cream puffs!!
  My thoughts are with all of you at your time of sorrow.
