Rosemary, this is Judy. I miss you already. We had so much fun late at night when everybody had been asleep for hours. I know where you are and God has opened the door for a wonderful friend. You did it your way and I thank God that your wishes came true. I will miss you but I know you are in a better place. Love You, Judy
