  6. Just learned of Judy’s passing. She was such a beautiful person, so gentle and with a smile that would just make me melt. I dated Judy back in high school, took her to my senior prom, and she was truly my first real ‘love.’ The world is not as joyous without her presence.. I wish I could have found the time to catch up with her and tell her these things in person.
