I have known Judy for over 20 years as she was my point of contact for State Farm. She was such a sweet lady that always took care of me. She walked me thru my Father’s early passing last year, and was so very determined to make sure everything was taken care of. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family, she will be missed by so many.
