    We are sorry for your loss. So glad Judie Knew Jesus personally as her Lord and Savior. Her gain, but many will still miss her. I had the blessed opportunity to work with her in a school in New Richmond.

    Dear Dave and family….I just today heard of Judie’s passing and I am just shocked. I was talking to the Solarz on the phone and they told me. I am just so very sorry for your loss. I remember lots of good times with Judie and Dave years ago when Mike and I were living in New Richmond. Peace to all of your hearts.
