    Our twin Sons met her twin Sons in St. Mary's School years ago. Everyone became great friends. We will all miss Judy. A great friend, the life of any event, and a giving person. Condolences to William and Angelo, and her family.

    Thinking and praying for The O'Rourke family at this difficult time. Not only was Judy beautiful. She was such a kind and lively person. I remember meeting her one summer day at the beach sporting her tan, gorgeous hair and eyes. We talked for hours and she told me she couldn't wait until we got back to Baltimore for me to meet her brother. I owe thanks to Judy for introducing me to my first true love and her amazing family who will always have a place in my heart.
