Dear Dave, Patty and Tammy, We are saddened to learn of Judy's passing. I always enjoyed working with Judy at Musquodoboit Valley Memorial Hospital, she loved people, was a compassionate nurse, and was always ready for a good laugh or a good joke.I have thought of her often over the years, remembering our overnight stay with you in Lunenburg many years ago. Our deepest and most sincere sympathy to each of you, will be thinking of you in the days and months ahead. Neighbors from Musquodoboit. Bruce and Janice White
