A lifetime of memories most good, some not so good. Being 2 years younger than Judy growing up meant we were very close in a turbulent household. I visited her when I could and we were able to share the many memories on multiple occasions. I was able to play my Concertina at her apartment with my friend Shirley and all Judy's friends. This was a return from my 55th college reunion back in 2018. A last visit, sadly. She is in my heart and my memories, now and forever. Georgia W. Dahlberg
