  1. Dear Dorothy and family, My thoughts are with you at this sad time. I remember Judy as a small, shy little girl coming into church holding on to your hand. When MEDALS for MOTHERS awards are handed out, you will win first prize. Its been 26 years since you and I worked at the old Swannanoa Cleaners, what a pleasure it was to work with you. You made it fun. Love,Helen Yoder
