Judy, Judy, Judy

We met riding the bus to high school in 1955. Judy was a loving, faithful friend and stuck with me all these years. My parents thought Judy was the best person I ever met. We were always at her house up the hill or my house further down Loma Vista. She backed me up and bucked me up when I did stupid things. I only remember her getting really mad at me one time, and I deserved it.
In 1964, I married her cousin Robert and became part of her wonderful family. My parents were right; she was the best person ever. She died this morning at 3:25.

Oh, our "neighbor, friend, and pal" Judy from up the hill there in Orinda where we were growing up.....oh, yes, she is in my memory bank too. What's the line from the musical West Side Story song? "Such a pretty girl..." THAT's how I will *always* see her in my mind's eye.
