    Dear Larry and family,
    May God’s love surround you and hold you close. All of our lives are better because we had the blessing of knowing Judy. She taught us to love unconditionally without limits and to find joy in all of God’s creation. Already miss her hugs, her laughter, her admonitions to keep priorities straight, and seeing the way she looked at the one and only love of her life (even if he did miss that shot of yet another “Welcome to Our State” sign). We love you, Larry and all of your family.
