I did not know Judy at all. Heck, I was even to scared to talk to her. We did not run in the same circles. But, I do know that she turned my head several times because of her outward appearance. To me, she was every guys dream.

Judy was a wonderful woman filled with kindness.  I was proud to be part of her life for many years both in Newton, Hutchinson, Pittsburg, and Lawrence Kansas. 

God Bless her and her family.

I have taken Connie Hale's comments to heart and feel the need to post my memories of Judy. I left Newton long ago but since I knew Judy from the start of elementary school through high school it covered a major part of my life. The memory I want to leave here is about her strength to go her own path and that influenced my life as an acquaitance maybe even a friend.  My last memory of her was riding her motorcycle.  I think it was an Indianhead Harley.
