Joe,
Please accept Wendy’s and my condolences. While we didn’t know Judy well, she was always very cordial to us and we know she is missed by you and family. She was blessed with a long life and a great family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

We thank you all for all your prayers, love and support. My mother loved you all! She had a direct influence and connection with everyone she met, especially a direct connection with God. Love you all and LNP (love and prayers)!

Sending my sympathy to the entire “J” Bonar family. My memories of Judy are from the 80’s when Jeff was dating my daughter, Melanie, She was such a lovely lady, and I so enjoyed our conversations. Please be comforted by all the loving memories you have.

Joe and family,
Judy filled so many hearts here on earth. We taught together at Christa McAuliffe for many years. Judy was unfortunate enough to break her arm one year, and I was truly fortunate to be able to drive her back and forth to school. We laughed the whole time. Judy was one of the first people that knew I was expecting, after waiting for many years. She only knew because I had to pull over to the side of the road to get rid of all of the vitamins I had taken that morning. She didn’t say a word, at first. A few minutes later she said “You know, Donna, I think you might be expecting!” I confirmed her deduction and swore her to secrecy. She never told a soul until I was ready to reveal it myself. Of course, she had a sussie for me every morning after that. Judy could be counted on as a true friend and mentor. She could always be counted on for a smile and a laugh, even under stressful circumstances. However, it is truly her heart, big enough to take in everyone she met, that we will all miss the most. Save a sussie for me Judy.

Dear Joe and Family,
I am so extremely sorry for your loss, as I know this leaves a huge emptiness in your lives. Take hope in knowing that Judy is resting in Jesus’ almighty presence and that one day we will all be together again. She loved each one of you and loved you well!!!
Tina, Judy and I taught together for 8 incredible years. Together we said we made “one brain” when it came to teaching. We became like family! Judy not only was my friend, but she almost like a second mom. Judy made EVERYONE feel special, cared and loved. No one will ever forget her kindness and “sussies” she gave out. She made you smile even on bad days. I love Judy and will miss our yearly meetings for lunch. Where we talked, laughed and sometimes shed a few tears. She one of the best souls I will ever know. I’m grateful for the years that God placed Judy in my world. She made me a better person and Christian. Love you forever Judy. Rest easy my friend until we meet again.

Joe, as you know, in Christ death is not the end but the entrance into the eternal blessedness of the God of our salvation. This beautiful truth was not appreciated by us when we met so often at the Rataiczak home as the First Presbyterian youth group so many years ago. But may all of the comforts of this great truth be very real to you and your family at this time, even as you experience the pain of Judy’s not being at your side. Praise God for her and for your lives together!
