My deepest condolences to you and your family Richard. Godspeed!

Dear Richard, Jeff, Mike, Tami and families, We are praying that our Lord will give you His Comfort and His Peace as you celebrate the life of Judy, your loving wife, mother, grandmother, and sibling. Pat remembers Judy as one of her earliest playmates; cousin and neighbor, and the memories are both many and good. Later, when we retired to Ohio; Judy and Richard shared many activities with us. Meals, movies, games, and just visiting; and they also shared their families with us. Later these activities extended to winter in Florida. We saw Judy as an encourager; she always had a way of wanting to help everyone do well, and that included family, friends, and business associates. May that memory help all of us. In the Spirit of Ps 37:4. 'May the Lord Bless you, and all you hold dear.' Love, Pat (Seiber) and David Schmisseur

We were so saddened to hear about Aunt Judy's passing. After my mom (Mary Anne Murdock Seiber) passed in January, Dad (Dale Seiber) was missing his siblings even more. We had so hoped to get together this past summer. Sadly that was not to be... I pray you all feel the love and support from family and friends. Know that we are here for Uncle Richard and all of you...even if we can't be there in person. Love and prayers

Tami, My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this difficult time.
