    Oh, this makes me so sad. Judy was such a lovely person and Co neighbor. I’ll never forget her special deer who she called ‘Beauty’ – and will always think of her when I see them in the yard. So sorry 🙁

    Judy was my spiritual mentor and she helped me deepen my relationship with God. She also helped me get through my chronic fatigue. She invested her life and time into so many people. I am so blessed to have known her.

    I am so happy we were able to reconnect in our later years. We sort of lost touch with each other when you moved to Arizona. When we were young we had a lot of fun times together. RIP Judy. You are wrapped in God’s arms now.

    Prayers to Kristy Harrah Brown and Mike and Doug.My memories of this Spirit-filled lady will be the energy she brought to each situation. Whatever she shared, taught, lead you towards was fully grounded in God’s love and magnificent mercy. Eternally grateful to have known her and the family.

    With Heartfelt Sympathy to the Jarrah Family,

    May you rely on the God of all comfort to help you to endure the days ahead.

    “God is our refuge and strength.” (Psalms 46:1).

    May fond memories of your loved one bring you comfort during this hard time in your life. Look back on all the good memories you were able to have and smile at the fact that you were able to share these before she passed away. My hearts and prayers go out to you and your family. God has promised us that we will soon be reunited with our loved ones. “There is going to be a resurrection,” the Bible confirms at Acts 24:15. “Do not be amazed at this,” Jesus assures us, “for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.” (John 5:28, 29)
