    My sympathy to Don and the rest of Judy's family.  I enjoyed Judy as a coworker, neighbor, and friend for many years. She was always interested in me and concerned for my well being.  A couple of many memories are when she'd  send Don over to try and kill gophers, or the snakes that were brought in from my neighbor thinking they'd stay in his yard as pets, but definitely preferred MY yard!  Also, when they'd order pizza, she'd often send Don over with a couple pieces for me, even when the temp was below zero.  Thanks again, Don! And then there were the garage sales....  :)  I definitely missed them when they moved, but will cherish my memories.
