    Dear Bob & daughters,
    I knew Judy from the time we were flower girls at age 4 so I guess you could say we were life-long friends. For many, many years, it never failed that the first Christmas card I received was from “the Graves’”, she never missed a class reunion, and she never had anything but a smile for me.
    Be comforted that she had many good & wonderful things & people in her life before disease stole her from you.

  6. Bob,
    I’m so sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
