    Judy has been a good friend of mine for many years. She has been in my prayers for a long time. She was a long time volunteer with me at Alpha Center on Mondays.
    These were special times together. She brought her experience of nursing &
    care & encouragement to the clients she served.
    May her soul rest in peace.
    Blessings of comfort to all the family.
    With love & prayers,
    Martha Seep
