if you cannot or wish not to donate, could you please share to your social media. We are really struggling, as our income was halted when she went in the hospital. We are really struggling but her memorial service means a lot to us. Thank you.

I have been off of C2 for the most part in well over a year and half, hadn't been well myself. I was thinking as to how much I missed our conversations I had with Judy.

I said, I must look to see if Judy has posted anything recent, or try to get in touch with her. And so I see that a recent posting was made, but sadly not a posting I was wanting to see.

If she is at all understanding what is going on, tell her Dandelion, as she'd know me best that way, misses her and loves her and thanks her for all our conversations together. Tell her I also had been ill, therefore I was not in contact for so long.

This just brings tears to my eyes. I'm in the worst place financially I could be at this moment, almost to the point of homeless if something doesn't change. I wish I could offer help but am unable to do so. For Judy I'd given anything. Upsets me I can't. I will share this on FB where I tend to be a bit more often.

Judy spoke lovingly of her family, she loves you all so much and I'm sorry you'll soon be saying so long but I know she has fought a hard battle with her health issues. You have a wonderful Mother and Grandmother with a heart of gold. She cared so much about so many issues, her passion was deep and her intelligence amazing.

I have a deep hurt in my heart but have been so honored to have met Judy, even if it was online. She will be a dear person in my life forever in my memory.

"It is with an extremely heavy heart that I let everyone know, Judy, my awesome mother in law and friend, passed away this evening, 5/11/2019.
She passed peacefully surrounded by her family who adored her."

Oh dear i didn't check the updates, i just ferociously kept re-Tweeting!!
Condolences & love to her family. 🌹

Sheryl, i think we should continue sharing the GoFundMe page for the family.

Mary, if i'm wrong, please let us know.

Ty Sheryl, tho I noted before seeing the Avatar I now am gasping with falling tears. My heart just hurts I had not heard from Judy lately and dealt with issues myself, not a reason for NOT PAY ATTENTION to dear friends. I will see what I can do on that Go Fund Me Page .

This even made me sob more

Sheryl when i read your message that Judy C. passed away, sadness erupted through tears as i felt my heart momentarily skip a beat. Judy C. and i shared comments with occasional messages in between, cheering each other on, grateful always for the inspiration, for the laughter.
Although I didn't know Judy as well as I wanted to, i have to say we were brought together like the threads in a tapestry, meant to create a more meaningful life in the world we lived in, and just like all of her friends now, coming together to grieve her passing, and to honour our cherished memories of Judy, that tapestry seems to be singing with the Angels!
I offer my sincere condolences to Judy's near and dear ones, family and friends who adored her, and who will miss her deeply. I offer my Light & Love with healing prayers for comforting !
I will of course share the GoFundMe page for the family on my Pinterest boards and Twitter.

So sad to hear this I remember seeing her around when I first came back on to care2 about 5 years ago but was unable to get to know her personally. I'm sorry to say.
I'm glad she was Sheryl's close friend and I am sure they shared some wonderful times.
This is a bad time of the month for me money wise but if the fund is still going come on the 1st I will be able to give a small amount. I would like to see it continue to grow so quickly --Animae thanks for letting us know how about that and love and condolences are offered to her family . Godspeed Judy♎❤

One last update for all who knew and loved Judy. Here is the link for her memorial service information and the tribute wall. Thank you so much to everyone who was a part of her life. Thank you even more for all the help and support we have received in celebrating her memory. We love you all.

The Final/‘Thank you’ update:

‘Thank you’ is such a paltry phrase. It can hold immense power and meaning, but the words feel too small to express what we are all truly feeling.

When we started this campaign, we really had little hope of finding what we desperately needed to pay Judy’s final expenses. You guys, her wonderful friends, her family, my family, the extended network of family she was so priviledged to pick by choice; you all came through for us and for her like tiny miracles, and even restored our collective faith in humanity—at least a little bit.

I feel like many people also deserve a special thanks. Orion, for contacting his whole side of the family. Pat and Elaine, for contacting that whole side of Judy’s friend network. To everyone who spoke at the memorial service, reminding us all to look at the bright side, like she surely wants us to.

Definitely the most special-est (ha ha) of ‘Thank You’s’ to my sister in law Nicole and and my wonderful husband Robb, who heartbreakingly but masterfully; beautifully, took up the assignments their amazing mother asked of them. You both know how proud she was to be your mom, and clearly you’re proud to be her kids.

We couldn’t have done any of this without each and every person who prayed, sent kind thoughts, visited her, sent cards, sent donations, gave well wishes, sent her gifts, sent plants and flowers and all who gave shoulders to cry on going all the way back to the beginning six months ago.

Thank you all a million times. We just can’t say it enough. Thank you.

Anyone who missed the guestbook at the Memorial or the folders and prayer cards can contact me (Mary) and I will do my very best to get them to you or bring the book so you can sign it if you wish.

Humbly yours,

I am so glad that the needed funds were raised for Judy's service. I was not able to donate but I passed the Go Fund Me page around wherever I could. I see some familiar names that answered the call.

I cried knowing that I'll not have anymore conversations with Judy, I only wish I had known sooner to have had a few more conversations with her. My being ill just happened to correspond with her being ill and we were not connecting.

You had a lovely Mother Mary, and now she is free from all pains and confinements. Thank you for those updates and I'm sure you'll keep Judy safely tucked inside your heart like so many of us who knew her will.

I have not been on Care2 for 2 months, so am just now learning of Judy's death. I didn't really know her but often saw her avatar. I am so sorry to hear of her passing. God bless her family and many friends that she leaves behind
