  • Judy was a beautiful lady and a great friend. She will be missed by all who were lucky to have know her, My deepest sympathy for you and your family.

  • Devlin Family,

    My most sincere condolences to each of you for the loss of Judy.

    Tracey and I are coworkers and she (Tracey) has shared many stories about her family….as I have shared with her about my own family as well. Will be 5 years December 23rd since the passing of my Mother….and there is not a day that goes by where I am reluctant to think about her…..miss her…and wish that she were still here.

    The pain that you all are encountering at this moment with Judy’s passing yesterday….saddens my heart to the point of tears….for her…and each of you. Based upon what Tracey shared with me, she (Judy), fought a long and courageous battle over the past several months…..but now she rests….and I am sure that she is now in the loving comfort of our heavenly Father…as well as other family members that have gone before her.

    Although I only know Tracey, I can see the family resemblance in Judy’s eyes from the picture…..which is quite amazing for not personally knowing Judy….but knowing Tracey.

    There is a card that one of my dear friends gave to me….after my Mom’s passing….which has been on my home office desk ever since…and I read it from time to time….when I need a little encouragement/understanding relative to the fragile life that we all live.

    Cover of the card reads ‘A Mother’s love is always with her children’. Within the inside of the card…..it says ‘Losing a Mother…is one of the deepest sorrows a heart can know. But her goodness, her caring, and her wisdom live on – like a legacy of love that will always be with you. Hope that love surrounds you now and brings you peace’.

    Hope that you all find comfort in each other during this most difficult time…and again my most sincere and humble condolences to the Devlin family for the loss of such a beloved family member.

    She was a good friend and I’ll miss our lunches together with our high school friends that got together when I was able to get back to Loudonville.
