    Judy, if only you could know how much I appreciated you as a boss at Mid-Carolina. You were fun, strong, a friend, a protector and I will never forget you or your laugh and smile. You even sent me flowers and a card saying how proud you were of me for taking on a position that used to be yours after you retired years later. You meant so me and my daughter. I will never forget you. When I think of you I will smile. I am sorry I pounded on your desk but you knew how much I needed a job..it was the best job ever and I always wanted to make you proud!!! I am sad today as I know I will continue to think of you often and you can't be reached by phone. I will cherish our photos. I am so blessed to have known you, Corky, Robin and girls, Of whom I know how much you loved them. I miss you already.
