We got to know Judy and Mike while they were residents at Philip’s Square, our next door neighbors. Judy was the sweetest person, always smiling and a kind word for everyone. She took care of the flowers in our court and did a lot of walking. She was always busy. Mike, we are sending our condolences to you and your family.
