  1. Our hearts go out to you, Fritz, Stephanie and Tim. We knew Judy for over 30 years, from the 1st day of kindergarten for Tim and Jeff to now. She was a wonderful, loving woman, whose family and, especially her grandson, meant the world to her. She was so multi-talented. We feel honored to have one of her paintings. Judy was the best kind of bridge partner; she and Nancy loved to “sock it to” the guys. We loved our dinners together; we shared so much more than food. We loved her, we miss her, we will always remember the significant role she played in our lives.

    Our love and prayers to all of you.

    Gary and Nancy

  2. We sent some pictures of our last visit. She was such a beautiful lady, giving was her nature, gifted in her design of arts, and loved flowers, and being outside. She loved Gods creatures, her pets. She was a wonderful Mother, and daughter to her Mother. She was a chosen blessed wife to her Husband Fritz, a couple of devotion and love.
    Thanks for sharing your life with us as neighbors for 21 years. We say good bye for now, but she will be waiting for us to have a neighborhood gathering. A welcome.
    Love to all, John and Joyce

  3. Francis and Family: We have never met but I had corresponded with Judy on a few occassions as I have done the Hazen family tree for many years. Don Hazen a cousin of yours and mine let me know about Judy’s passing. You have my deepest sympathy and I am sorry for your loss.

  4. Fritz we will be saying a special prayer this Friday for Judy and you and your family. We wish we could have been there to join in the celebrate of Judy life.

    Dear Fritz and family

    What a wonderful privilege it was for me to meet Fritz and Judy in person in May 2007. From the times I spoke with Judy or observed her, it was clear that she was an exceptional, loving, giving woman. The way she came all the way to South Africa for the wedding despite some real challenges, was a sacrifice that speaks of her selflessness.

    She made a painting of Himne that speaks to my heart every time I see it.

    I am grateful to have known her, even if it was to a small extent, she was a big blessing to me, and the beautiful things she has done still speaks.

    May the LORD comfort your hearts, also with the many special memories.
