Judy, I first was welcomed into your home fifty years ago and at this moment I find I am awash with memories of love, laughter, food, and friendship. I will never forget you. Love, Mike

Carl Abel and the family of Judith Ann Abel, If i could write my heart on the loss of a mom I would. Yet i cannot. A mom to a son is more than special. I do not know anything or anyone except Carl at work but if he is any indication of the kind of mom she was then she was a great mom. Attention to detail and love are gifts from a mom. Holding true to values are also critical. Mom's teach that along with dads but moms are able to do it in subtle ways. May your hearts be healed as time passes and may her memory always bring you joy and remind you of all that her life stood for. Grace and Hope guide you today and be comforted that she lived well and fought with joy to win the race.

Judy and her family was our neighbor in Union City for several years. We happened to run into Judy at a restaurant in Union City a couple years ago. My wife and I at one table, Judy and her husband at another. Even though we hadn't seen her for as many as 50 years, we both recognized one and the other almost immediately. Good people, good neighbors.
We send our condolences to the surviving family knowing Heaven has gained another angel.

Judy was a great lady, person, and friend. She was my ex-wife's aunt, but still treated me like family, after our divorce. She will be missed. So sorry for your loss. My/our prayers are with you. Michael Zehringer & family.
