I have known Judy for over 30 years and she was a wonderful person that will be greatly missed by the American Legion Auxiliary. She loved working the registration table wherever it may be (Conferences, Conventions, Legion College, etc.) She was a bright star among us all. I was hoping her Memorial Service would be a different day than Tuesday, but to no avail. I wanted to be there for her, butt have to be somewhere else on that day. Please know that my thoughts and prayers will be with the Unit members, the Legion Family member present and the family. I know she is in heaven with everyone now where she wil be happy and healthy forever.
