We didn't know about Judy's passing until we read it last Thursday in the weekly Wapello Republican. So sorry that we were thus unable to meet the family. Many fond memories of connections during our children's school days and 4-H club meetings. It was always a pleasure to cross paths with Judy in town now & then.

Sincerely, Al & Martha Wiegand
