Dear Don, Doug and Chris,
I was so saddened to hear that your mom passed. I was happy to know that your dad, your grandparents (Aunt Grace and Uncle Frank) and my parents -Dolores & Roger and Aunt Germaine where all in heaven to greet her. Aunt Grace had the Cutty Sark in hand, asking your mom if she wanted a drink and they were all ready to party. Your mom was so special, like an aunt to the Jones kids. She was always full of life and fun. She and Aunt Maureen were the last of the Lauderette girls (Dolores, Germaine, Maureen and Judy) and the one solo Lauderette man, Uncle Frank. Today I will celebrate all of my fond memories of your mom. She so loved her grand daughter, Bridget. Please be sure to pass on old family stories and keep the history alive for Bridget. My thoughts and prayers go out to the whole extended family. My mom was always telling us stories of their childhood and I cherish them to this day. Today we raise a glass to Aunt Judy, a woman who brought happiness, laughter and love to so many. Hugs and love from Philadelphia. We wish we could be with you today.
