Buddy,Barbara, and family,

I was so sorry to hear about Judy’s cancer and passing. We just got back in town, but Maxine was nice enough to e-mail me and let us know. I didn’t know she had been that sick and was certainly sorry to hear the news. We went back a long ways and even though we hadn’t kept in touch it was still a very sad message to receive. I know you are all feeling the pain and our thoughts are with you. At least she is now in peace.

Sincerely,

Brian and Sara Murden

Dear Buddy and family, I was so sorry to hear about Judys’ passing. She was in our office not that long ago and I asked her if she was “Buddy’s Daughter” and she said yes “not Judy Riggs” but Buddys daughter. She so loves you and I know you are heart broken. May God keep a hand on your shoulder and heart in this hard time of your life. I am thinking of you in this time of your life and wish you the courage to go on as hard as it will be.

Fondly, Lois Richards Radiology office.

I just heard the news about Judy yesterday. I didn’t even know she was sick. It goes to tell that no matter how busy our own lives are, we should take the time to reach out to old friends once in awhile. My sincere condolences to the whole family. I hope Buddy is holding up okay.
