    To Judys family of origin. It is never easy to let go of someone we love and even harder when we have fought to save that person from themselves. Please try to find comfort in the fact that our dear Judy is no longer in pain or suffering. She is finally at peace and that is a good thing. If you wonder if her life had worth, think about all the people she helped when she was actively nursing. Think about how many of those folks are still around today because of Judys gentle caring ways. I remember something I heard and still believe to this day. That no alcoholic who dies drunk dies in vain. They die so that another alcoholic might see that and live as the example of what can be if we continue to drink. We can’t blame someone who is sick with a disease and dear Judy had a disease that was incurable. We can only get it into remission. God bless all of you who cared about and loved her. With deepest respect and carring. Respectfully, David G Gary

      Thank you David Gary for the kind words and expressions of Judy’s tragic days. She and her family had been through some very difficult times these last few years. Her Maine family (colleagues that became best friends) will always remember the good, no GREAT, times we had with Judy and all the lives she touched here with her heart and her wisdom. I am proud to call her my “little sister.”

    Mrs. Rule, Jerri, Jackie, and Janie, I am so sorry for your loss. Judy was such a sweet energetic child who grew into a lovely kind woman. When I think of Judy, I will always remember her first as the boot and blue jean wearing freckle-faced young girl with an impish grin, running around Percy Warner Stables. She so loved riding the trails of the park and I am sure she knew every one of them by heart. Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers. I hope she is riding the bridle paths in Heaven.
    With great and deepest sympathy,
    Ellen Campbell Marsh

    I was Judy’s counselor in Knoxville. This lady made me smile and brought joy into my heart, as so many others. Her passing hurt, however, the time I spent with her was such a blessing. The few months I spent with her will not be forgotten. Remember all the positive things she accomplished. No more misery on earth.

    Prayers continue for all of you.
