Can't begin to tell you how much I enjoyed Orville and Judy. My father lived across the hall on Parkwood. My sincere condolences.

My heart broke to hear of Judy's passing. I am so happy I went to see her a couple of weeks ago and we had a wonderful visit. I so enjoyed being one of her caregivers while I was at Villa Maria. We had some good talks and her sense of humor was the best. It was not unusual for us to get the giggles! I will miss her!!!

My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Enjoyed our phone conversations these past few years and glad I had a great visit with her a couple years ago. She is now with Orville where she wanted to be. Thinking of you all.
