Judy Stutts Crider, November 5, 1943 - November 27, 2014

Connie Smith had a country song long ago, addressed to a lover who jilted her.  She says the only time she wishes he weren't gone is "once a day, every day, all day long."  That pretty much sums it up for me when it comes to losing Judy.  I think about her once a day, every day, all day long.

We've been thinking a lot about you and Judy lately, especially as this time of year got closer. I just read A WIDOW'S STORY by Joyce Carol Oates, which also made me think of her. I think when people say it gets easier, they don't know what they're talking about.

We're thinking about you.

Thinking of you and sending virtual hugs. This was very nice way of sharing Judy and your love for her with us.

The Holidays bring back a lot of memories, don't they?

I can't even imagine, but that's the kind of pain that just never seems to go away. Hang in there. Do something today that you know she'd be happy you did.

We miss Judy, too.

Just so sorry.

Stay strong, cuddle the VBKs, take comfort from the memories. There are a lot of folks out here sending you good thoughts today. And I hope when you feel like it you'll write some more about your lives together. Those are great posts.

I read that every great love affair ends in tragedy. Just remember, you'll meet again.
