In lieu of flowers, the family encourages you to donate to the Alzheimer’s Association at www.alz.org. Watching what this disease does to someone who you love is one of the hardest things our family has experienced. It slowly changes them, and they become a completely different person and there is absolutely nothing you can do as there is no cure. Your donation can make an impact on dementia research to discover cures and causes as well as provide resources for caretakers and people living with dementia. Let’s continue to provide hope in others lives. Judy was a strong, vibrant, loving woman who cherished her family and found joy in everything. Please help us celebrate her life and legacy.
