David Fink

You treated me well through my childhood. I'm grateful for your kindness.

Cookie Shapiro

My love and sympathy to all of Judi's family.
My friendship began thru four years of high school, one year of college, through her marriage to your father Milt.
After Judi met Zachary Ephraim, their marriage party was held in our home in Boca Raton. And all through these twenty-five years, we were always on the phone to each other.
I will miss my IDUJ (Judi spelled backwards) and our phone conversations. She was a great friend and I loved her.

Barbara Bayuk

We are shocked to hear to Judi's passing & are so sorry for your loss. Judi worked for us in our
Party store in Boca Raton 30 years ago and we remained friends. She was like family to us.
I will miss seeing her, our phone conversations and lunch dates. Sending our love to the family and
sincere condolences.
Love, Barbara & Barry
