I saw the visible changes and I refused to let myself believe it. I knew the eventual outcome, yet I still refused to accept it. In such a short time you became such a big part of my heart and it tore me up when you had to go.When we talked over morning coffee (every morning). It was as if I were talking to an Aunt I had known all my life.We talked about everything ,nothing was off limits and you never judged.Only offered insight and encouragement. We both loved to read, bake, and sew, in any order.My mornings, days and nights will never be the same without you. Though I am saddened by your transcendence to be with our heavenly father, I take solence in knowing you are happy and pain free. You will forever be in my heart and on my mind. I am eternally grateful for the time we had and thank you for opening your heart to me. I am very glad to have made your acquaintance....... Woman of God, Mother, Sister, Missionary, Woman of Knowledge, Visionary Nerturer,Expert cook, Expert sewer, Artist, Author- Holding Johnson My Judi........My Friend

We were so sorry to hear of the loss of Judi, she was such an entertaining, intelligent, funny, woman of God. She loved her children, grandchildren and of course her beloved sister Esther. Shawn, Jason and I send are prayers to her family. May she celebrate in eternity the God she lived to glorify.

Judi - I was taken by surprise by your took my breath away. I told Meg how I just loved to sit at the table with you, while you shared your amusing stories and historical references...I learned so much from you. Nathan was so fortunate to be the receiver of your gift of dry humor (my favorite thing, of course) - I miss him also. I see you both in my mind's eye, walking arm in arm on the golden streets, catching up on the past years. Please hug my parents for me...I hope you all can share together, the glories of the Lord. I love you...

I was so very, very sad to hear of Judi's passing ... I love her dearly. I have hundreds of fond memories, all the way back to spending slumber parties in the Daly City home. Judi was an amazing example of a Godly woman. She kept a beautiful home, cooked delicious food, showed hospitality to many, many young and old people. I could sit for hours listening to her telling her stories, reading from her work, or just sit together with the family singing hymns. What a gifted woman! This extraordinary woman went back to college after her children were born to pursue her degree. Talk about determination and courage! I was, and still am inspired by her example. I will miss her terribly! Dear Jude, Please say hello to Nath and my Dad for me. I love you!
