Pete,We just received the Lamar Democrat only to learn of Judy's passing. I hope she got a little time to enjoy our folks home in Lamar. I remember our times together when we both worked at Finley Engineering and I know she will be missed by many. Our prayers are with you and the family. Guy Sutherland
