I am so sorry to hear this news. Judy and I became friends when we were in the Goldwing motorcycle club together. We shared a love of cats. We would meet several times a year for lunch and Judy would always hand me a bag of cat food to feed my feral colony. We spoke briefly last month as I was driving and could not pull over. When the memorial is planned please notify me so I can be there. Rest in Peace my friend.
