  1. What a loss. My heart goes out to Biz, Zander, Racheal, John Jackson, and John Burkit. Grandma lives on with Stacy now. ❤️

  2. Judy and I were such good friends in the 1980’s and stayed in touch. I could never get her on a plane to visit me in Maine although I did fly her to Chicago once for dinner. We also went to New Orleans by train. I have such fond memories of her and that raspy voice and full laugh. She suffered no fools and was a great worker.

  3. Racheal,

    I am so sorry for the loss of your mom. She was an amazing and woman, and in the short time that we got to interact, I came to love her as a sister in Christ and for who she was. Jude always made sure she spoke to me when she would spot me, and I got the best hugs from her. Please know that you, Zander, and Biz, as well as all who loved her, will be in our prayers. May God calm your grief and embrace you with his grace, as he gently collects the tears you are all crying. God bless all of you.

  4. Love ya grandma. You’ll forever be in my heart and mind. Thank you for always being just as sassy as me. Baby bear misses ya.

  5. I will miss her. We only spent a few years together at a very sad time in her life but we’re able to have some good times. Her tumultuous smile and her caring about life were great attributes of her glowing personality. Rest in peace Jude, you will be missed. Give Stacy a big hug for me.❤️
