    Our deepest sympathy to Sister Carolyn and all of Judy's family, for your great loss and to those who loved and cared so much for Judy. We are so sad to hear of the loss of our friend and share in your sorrow. Who would have known that 18 years ago we would meet someone as special as Judy, when she honored us with our first Ridgeback and began granting us with great knowledge of the breed and so much more. Judy thank you for having faith in us and bringing Chelsea and Vinny into our and then had faith in placing our beloved first Ridgebacks with us, as they became a special part of our lives as you have. We will miss your visits to Michigan with the dogs and your guinea pigs, and the ventures out to eat and to the Valpomultiple shows with the great stories you would share. Dear friend your many months of courage and pain since the accident, we in tearful sorrow will miss you with all our heart, and know you will never be forgotten. We pray that you will now find peace, and meet tails a wagging waiting to greet over that rainbow bridge. To Judy's family, we wish we could be there in person, tomorrow but please know we will be with you in spirit, as jobs will not allow us to attend. Our friend we will surely miss you!With our prayers and love Laura, Gerald, and Maryelle
