From seventh grade to the end of her earthly life, Judy Ward and I were dear friends. Although many miles eventually separated us, our friendship stood time’s test. One day, the Lord will reunite us. Until then, happy memories of laughter, sharing, and caring are of comfort. What a blessing that “God gave us memory that we might have roses in December” (James Barrie). Barbara
