JUDY WAS OUR FABULOUS PIANO ACCOMPANIEST TO OUR HUGE  WOODWARD CHOIR AND WAS MR. MCSPADDEN'S RIGHT HAND.  WHERE WOULD WE HAVE BEEN WITHOUT HER?!  THANK YOU, JUDY, FOR ALL YOUR HARD WORK.  I TALKED WITH HER AT OUR 50TH REUNION AND SHE LOOKED REALLY GREAT! I ASKED HER IF SHE STILL PLAYED ACCOMPANIMENT AND SHE SAID "NO, I GREW TIRED OF THAT A LONG TIME AGO."  JUDY ALWAYS HAD A PLEASANT DEMEANOR AND A SOFT SMILE.  I AM REALLY SHOCKED AT HER DEATH. WHEN I ASKED HER HUSBAND MICHAEL WHAT SHE DIED OF, HE SAID "SHE HAD ISSUES." HE SAID HE AND JUDY WERE MARRIED 15 YRS.  WHEN I ASKED HIM WHAT HE WOULD WANT JUDY'S CLASSMATES TO KNOW ABOUT HER, HE SAID "SHE JUST LOVED TO TRAVEL."  THEY HAD SPENT 3 MONTHS ON THE WEST COAST.

I WANT TO SHARE WITH YOU A VERY INSPIRING EVENT. THERE IS A TV SHOW ON CABLE CALLED "i SURVIVED BEYOND AND BACK" ABOUT PEOPLE WHO PASSED OVER AND WERE RESUSCITATED. YOU MAY HAVE SEEN IT.   ONE MIDDLEAGED MAN WHO HAD A NEAR DEATH EXPERIENCE SPOKE BRIEFLY AND ENDED BY SAYING, "LAST WEEK A DEAR FRIEND OF MINE DIED."  THEN, HE SMILED FROM EAR TO EAR AND  SAID, "THAT LUCKY GUY!"
