I have the warmest of memories that include Mr. Judy and his granddaughters. I treasure them and can't help but smile as I revisit them when I look at his photo. We traveled many miles together, literally. He served as a 3rd/4th grade field-trip escort when I taught. He was one of the best! I observed his faithful investment of love, time and energy into Amanda and Melanie. What a lovely reflection these two young women are as a result. Hands down my own life was enriched by knowing him.
My thoughts and prayers are with your family as you adjust to this loss and grieve his absence.
