    I am so very sorry to heard of the passing of Judy. I worked with her at the Employment Security Commission and she was just a fun person and loved her family so much. Again, I am so sorry for the tragic loss of both Judy and Jessica. God Bless you!

    When I met Judy in 2002 in the Interstate Call Center of the Employment Security Commission, I was a little intimidated by this little woman who obviously was loved by everyone. She had a huge heart. I soon found out about Judy. Let just say she sent me something or so she thought it was me, but it actually went to someone else. We laughed until we could laugh no more. She was so sweet, loving, and just one of the finest people I would ever know. I still think about Judy every now and then when she retired and how much she loved her “Bae Bae”. I will truly miss her.
