I met Judy in 2005 when I started my career in test preparation and our offices were next to each other. Over the years, Judy was the source of insight, knowledge and friendship. She was so gracious and had so much integrity and goodness. The tributes at her funeral service mentioned her intellect, warmth, and love of travel, music and theatre--as the Rabbi said, she was such an interesting person. Over the past few years, I marveled at Judy's bravery and positive attitude while coping with her insidious illness. Her courage, grace and dignity were amazing and inspiring. Rest in peace dear Judy. You will always be in my heart.
