    Barbara & Peggy,
    I am just heartbroken to learn of my good friend’s passing! From the day you all moved in just across the street, Judy & I were together constantly. I came to know & love your entire family!
    I am so grateful that I was able to see Judy a couple of times over the years to laugh & remember our childhood fun – she never changed! I will try my best to come see you, but if not, please know how much I still care about your wonderful family – Janet Balmes Sleyster
