A dedicated teacher, she has left her mark on the future, a generous friend, and gentle soul, you will be missed. You have many doggie friends to meet at the rainbow bridge. Rest In Peace.

My deepest sympathy to the family and friends. Judy and I met in 1978 at a dog show and have been friends ever since. Just spoke to her on Jan. 15th, making plans to begin showing in the spring, adding more titles to her newly finished Ch. Summer. I will miss the sweetest, caring person I have ever known. Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.
