Please accept my sincere condolences on your loss. I know how hard it is to see your mother fight illness and then succumb to it. May the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort give you strength and peace in the days ahead. I have personally found comfort in the words at Acts 24:15 where it tells us, "There is going to be a resurrection", and that soon God will "wipe out every tear" from our eyes. (Rev. 21:4) You have my deepest sympathy.

Dear Family, Judy was such a special and wonderful person. She had a love of learning that was palpable and a gift for teaching that was always evident. I loved working with her and have such fond memories of our times together, especially our trip to the University of Connecticut to attend Confratute. I am keeping all of you in my thoughts and prayers as losing such a sweet, gentle soul is excruciatingly painful. Fondly, Bonnie & Dave Seaburn

My condolences and prayers go out to Judy's family. I worked with Judy, back when we were both substitute teachers at Gates Chili, and then, as full time teachers in Spencerport. She was a wonderful, caring lady.

Dear Family. In the few years I worked with Judy she was a most gracious woman, welcoming me to the Bernabi family and interested in hiking together. Judy was a wonderful educator whose love of learning was so apparent. Judy was such a warm and loving person and I felt privileged to have known her. My prayers are with your family in this time of sorrow.

Paul, Pam and I send our deepest condolences and prayers at Judy’s passing. Though time has passed it still doesn’t seem so long ago when we were in the same young adult group, and one after another got married. From what we read you two had a wonderful life together , and that Judy was a blessing to you family, friends and collegues.God’s peace go with you and your family.

Paul, While I have not seen Judy in many years, I recall her fondly as an outstanding person: kind, intelligent, thoughtful, talented, and wise beyond her years. She had a very positive influence on my life.

Years ago, I worked with Judy at Taylor School. She recruited me to be a mentor teacher at that time. Judy's appeal for the love of learning and figuring out ways to engage all learners will forever be emulated in my teaching. She will be missed yet, her spirit will continue to influence many lives, both teachers and students. May God's grace comfort your family.

Dear Paul, Know that our prayers are with you as you grieve, Paul. May you sense the sweetness and comfort of the Holy Spirit and be held by His strength and tender care for you. "Because You are my help, I sing in the shadow of Your wings. My soul clings to You; Your right hand upholds me." (Psalm 63:7-8) May God put His music in your heart as you cling to Him, Paul. Sending our love!
