Message: My heart was saddened today as I heard of Judy's death. She was a beautiful person, inside and out. I will always cherish the memories of our visit with her in Vancouver. Since my first visit, I kept her picture in my Bible as a reminder to pray for her. She no longer needs my prayer, but I'll remember her family who meant so much to her. May God give you strength now and in the days to come.

Hi Everyone, just wanted to extend a hello from all of us over here at 76 Since meeting Tamara and fam, a couple years ago and hearing about Nana, we have all learned so much on courage. Daily we remind each other, how precious every moment of health and happiness is. From a rather big family myself, we are very fortunate to date; that all is well. Everyone we know, has been regularily informed of the turn of events next door, in hopes that a few prayers will make this easier for Jude, and all who love her sooooo much. All the best to you JUDE, Tamara, Joe, Julianna, Grace and your dear families. Love Lauri and family

Hello there! I've been asking about both you and Tammy and Carol was kind enough to send me the link to this wonderful website. It's incredible! Just read the updates here Judy and am so incredibly impressed by your spirit, perseverance and tenacity. And I have noted to myself - "like mother, like daughter!" (Though, in this case, I should say children). It has struck me while reading through your notes and the messages of others that you have touched many people and are an inspiration to so many. Keep up your strength and know that you and your children are never far from our thoughts. Kelly Wohlert

Hi Jude, Hope this message finds you feeling well. It's the time of year when curling has started again. The ladies' curling is Wednesday nights. Brigitte King curls with me and,as always, she was asking about you last night. She asked me to say hello to you and send you her best wishes. Like the rest of us, she thinks of you often. I know I told you in June that she always enquires about you. Say hello to Tammy and the family from us. Hugs as always, Astrid, Paul and Henriette.

WAY TO GO, JUDE!!! I can imagine how good you felt getting out to CHAPTERS. Nothing like a good book, a latte, good company and a change of scenery. This was the most wonderful news. Hope the antibiotics have kicked in by now and you're getting rid of that cough. Are you" STARBUCKSed out" by now? Sounds as if everyone had the same idea on Saturday. Everyone certainly knows what you like. That's good. That's the way it should be. What are you reading these days? I'm in between books, so could use some suggestions. Hope the nurse's visit today went well. Until next time...Hugs all around...Astrid, Paul and Henriette

Hi Jude: Now that's the REAL news we've been waiting to hear. You are back settled in your own "digs"; your own bed etc. So glad to hear that you had a comfortable and above all pain free ride from Cambridge to Barrie. Once you have had some time to relax and readjust we hope to hear from you. Paul is going up north with some high school buddies this week-end and I am hoping to get lots of sewing done. As always hugs from everyone here. Astrid, Paul and Henriette.

Hi Jude: We were thrilled to hear that you had a wonderful Thanksgiving with friends and family. Now we are wondering whether you are back in your "Nana's Nest" in Barrie. If so, how did you get there? So many questions. Can't wait to hear from you again. Do let us know when/if you feel up to having some company again. We'd love to see you. Hugs all around...

Good morning Jude. I just saw Rebecca's note to you. There were 12 of us at the Run For The Cure yesterday.As Rebecca already said, we really strolled, but even without kids unless you were the leaders of the pack there was no way you could run there were just so many people (30,000 I believe). It was a feeling of trmendous unity, warmth and support. We spoke of you and got all the latest. Your ears should have been ringing yesterday because you were thought and spoken of so many times. We hope you continue to do well and are looking forward to reading that up date that will tell us that you are back in Barrie. Hope to see you again soon. Hugs, Astrid,Paul and Henriette

Hi Judy! It's the Blakey family here. I spent the day with Rachael and the girls plus little Liam (the token boy) today for the Run for the Cure (well...stroll for the Cure for us!) and got the update on how you are doing. We are so happy to hear you are heading home to Barrie and away from that yucky hospital food! I also wanted to say that you have done an amazing job on raising your children to be such great people - obviously a reflection of your love and support throughout their lives. You probably don't realize just how many people you've inspired from your love for life - I've told your marathon story to so many people - it's that 6 degrees of separation thing. We think of you often. Happy travels home!

Hi Jude: It was soooooo great to see you today and have an opportunity to chat. It was also wonderful to get to meet your sister Winnie and see Kim and the kids. Now I can picture exactly where you are, what you are doing, reading, watching etc. Hope you got some rest after we left. We picked some things up at the market and had a leisurely drive home. Please let us know if/when you feel up to another visit. As I said, it was WONDERFUL to see you. Your upbeat nature and great spirit will no doubt help you along the way. Here's to another good night's sleep. Hugs, Astrid, Paul and Henriette

Name : Pete

Judy, My wife of 32 years. We were barely out of childhood when we met, shortly after we married and had 3 children. Together the 5 of us muddled through life and grew up together in a loving environment. Then we abruptly discovered that life's roads often lead us in many directions, and sometimes the path that we are put on, we have no control over. Especially in marriage and in health. Together we had 3 children that have grown to be outstanding adults. This is evident everyday in the unselfish way they show love, affection, respect and care. We did a good job as parents. In all the time throughout your illness my thoughts, best wishes and prayers were always with you. I'm in awe of your strength, your quality, and your perceverance. I do, I have, and I always will love you. Pete or as you call me, P

Good morning, Jude! Hope you had a peaceful and restful night and that you see some sunshine when you look out your window this morning. I e-mailed again last night but I see it didn't go through. Hard to believe, I know, but I guess I'm not always too swift. I think I forgot to enter the code in that little box; voila, the message flew into cyberspace. Great to hear that the radiation is helping. It's count-down time now. Only 3 more treatments... Remember that "nana's nest" is waiting for you in Barrie. It's great to see that your sisters and brother as well as Anne and of course the kids and grandkids are all able to visit you. Keep that up and the hospital will have to add another visitors room. Just kidding; hopefully you'll be back home shortly. As always, know we are with you in thought and spirit. Our love to you, the kids and grandkids. Until later...much love, Astrid, Paul and Henriette

Name : Patti Stewart

Hi Jude, This is a wonderful thing to have a website. So many of us want you to know that we are thinking of you and this is a wonderful way to do so. Rachael and Astird have been keeping us posted on how you are doing and actually the entire Condon clan have been corresponding daily about how you are and how your treatment is going. Thank God for email. I know I don't have to tell you this because you already know, but sometimes it is nice to hear it from someone outside the family....so here it goes. You have a wonderful, supportive and caring family. You must be so proud to have raised three amazing children and to see how much they love and care for you. It must be a very special feeling to look back at all the years of raising your children and to see what they have developed into, and to see a piece of you in each and every one of them. I know I always wonder what my kids will be like as adults. We (the Co ndons) are lucky to have been married into that love via Rachael and all of us love and care for John as one of us.(but don't tell Johny this because he will think he is the fav son-in-law again and this will only go to his head!!) Anyway Judy, I am babbbling on but this is all to say that we all are constantly thinking about you and hope that in some samll way you can feel the tremendous love and support that is with you always. Love Patti, Jim, Hannah & Benjamin Stewart
