    Hi, My name is Mary Huffman.  I didn't know Judy very long since I was from Bethel Presbyterian before we blended.  But i served on session with her.  She was always a kind and loving person to me.  She also, with the help of her sister, made a quilt for my son out of his band T-shirts for last Christmas.  He will forever treasure that quilt.  Please accept my deepest sympathy.  May God hold you in the palm of His hand and give you His peace that passes all understanding.

    I'm sorry so to hear about Judy passing away.  Judy was a friend of my mother, Hazel Brown (they worked together years ago at Hawkeye Steel).  When mom passed in February, Judy and Bob came to the funeral home and I had a chance to visit with them.  It was so thoughtful they took the time to come and share a few stories.  She was so sweet and always had a smile for everyone.

    All of you are in my thoughts and prayers.
