    Our condolences to the Ferzetti family. I had no idea Judy has passed until I stood next to the estate sale sign today at the corner. I was in disbelief. Judy was such a soft spoken kind soul. Always had a smile. Gerry also. We will miss our neighbors of 27+ years.

    I will miss you, Aunt Judy. You were always a kind, amazing, thoughtful Aunt. I’m glad you are with Uncle Jerry now. I know you two will be laughing together again.

    I’m so sorry to my cousins who lost both of their amazing parents this year. I love you all.

    Judy, Judy, Judy. The first year you came to the family reunion in your wheelchair, pushed by Jerry of course, my sister Sandy greeted you with a big hug. “Judy,” she exclaimed, “it’s so good to see you.” She paused for a beat and then said, “Don’t get up.” You, and the rest of us standing around, roared with laughter. Yesterday, it was time for you to get up from your wheelchair. It was time to get up and dance with the angels.
