My deepest sympathy to you on the passing of Judy. I was a classmate of Judy's at Gehlen High, Class of 1968. As a newcomer as a freshman, Judy was always kind and supportive of me as a new student. My the Lord comfort you at this difficult time.

I'm so sorry for your loss. Judy was a second mom to me growing up as a kid in Sioux City and Shari was my best friend during our school years. The Holmberg house was my refuge and I remember fondly Judy giving me loving advice like a mother and inviting me on their family vacations. She is a shining gem who will be greatly missed.
With sincere love,
Carol Lee Tschampl-Diesing
