Judy was a good internet friend. Sometimes our dearest friendships are with people we have never met face to face. My sincerest sympathy is with the family of Judy. She was loved by many.

My most sincere and deepest sympathy to Judy's family on her passing. She was a good "friend" over the years on the several computer forums we belonged to. She will be dearly missed.

I am deeply saddened by the loss of a dear friend.
Judy, you will be missed, but your memory, your smile, your laughter and kindness will be in my heart forever. Perhaps later, we'll meet and jitter-bug again?
Thank-you for being my friend!!

Love you Judy! Keys in the mailbox come on in. So sorry Gary and family for your loss.

My deepest sympathies for the loss of this dear, kind, wonderful giving woman.

I was an "online friend" who knew Judy for years. She was always offering darling little pieces of art with our names ("siggies" - signatures for our online posts). Her cheerful contributions over the years filled our little online community with more love, kindness and fun because she was a part of it. She will be missed by many, and remembered with love.

Rest in peace, sweet friend. We were blessed to have known you.

I recently learned of your passing. Our paths briefly crossed for a little while and I am forever changed because of it. I know your pain is now unfelt, and you are not suffering any longer. My condolences to your family for having to carry on without your beautiful laugh.....

So, thank you, Judy for touching my life in a way only you could understand. Your spirits were never anything but upbeat. Thank you Gary, and your family, for allowing me to be a small part of your lives.

My deepest sympathies to Judy's family and friends. I just found out of her passing by a group member. ( we all belonged to groups on yahoo that shared animations for a very long time) Just would like to let you all know she is remembered fondly of her kindness.

My prayers are with all of you....so sad to hear of her passing.

Judy was an email buddy of mine since 2000. I first met her on an online message board about graphics and we have been in many Yahoo groups together to do with graphics and animations. She was currently in a group I run when she passed. We had birthdays close together and she never failed to wish me a Happy Birthday, and she also remembered everyone elses birthday. And I mean everyone...if she knew when their birthday was, she always sent them greetings. She was the nicest person and I am sooooo saddened. Much condolences to her family and friends.
