  7. Dear Lorne and Family
    Our sincere condolences on Judy’s passing, she was truly one of a kind.
    I first met Judy when she was President of Brigden Fair and mutual friends had lost their home to fire and I was trying to organize a fundraiser for them and I called Judy to ask her about using the fairgrounds hall for free and she got the ok for that and helped me out with more, that was the start of our friendship. She was Aunt Judy and Lorne is Uncle to our Haley. Judy proudly made her first ever quilt for Haley as a baby!! More recently I saw Judy and Lorne at Bluewater Health on treatment days as my Mom also has been receiving treatment coincidentally on the same weekday! We had some nice chats and visits there.
    Most recently Alan and I had a visit with Judy and Lorne at their home which turned out to be our last visit with Judy, so glad I bought celery accidentally!!
    Rest In Peace dear Judy❤️

  52. Mary and Family
    So very sorry to hear of Judys passing. Great memories were had at SS #14 Sombra school at Bradshaw . We went to a youth group and high school together. We were good friends ,neighbours and enjoyed many laughs and shared good memories of threshings around the area . RIP Judy .🙏🙏

  53. A beautiful person. I was so lucky to gain Judy as a sister . She instantly became a friend and we shared many events, visits and stories. Our family was enriched when Mom married Clayton and we all became family. As Mom is slipping away to dementia the one thing she remembers clearly is the farm and how good Judy and Lorne (her “pet”)were to her. The world is richer because Judy Grigg was in it. The world has a great loss as Heaven gained her. Bye Sis , love you , see you again someday

  54. Sharon,
    So sorry to hear of the loss of your sister. Condolences to all your family.
