If you were here at the very beginning of the board, you will remember that there were two CLs, myself and cl-ivhjude. It is with a lot of sadness for me to share with you that Judy passed away last Sunday from a 6 year 4 month battle with ovarian cancer.

Finding Your Best Life started with a daily chat between two people who lived in opposite ends of the world. At that time Judy was CL of two cancer boards. We decided that we wanted to co-CL a board, and we both wanted a board where we talked about living the best life that we can whatever else is happening in our lives. We both believe that life is lived each day and our best life happens each day, not when the cancer is in remission or the PTSD has gone or our financial situation bettered. It was such an honour to work alongside her.

Judy was smart, caring, compassionate. She was always laughing and seeing the humorous side of life situations. She helped a lot of people, and she inspired many more. She was a very good friend. She is hugely missed.

Thank you, Suzan. I think you and Judy would have gotten along very well. She really did help and support a lot of people here.

So sad to hear this Poppy,
I knew Judy from AOL days ..
She was a great help to me then as she has always been once we *moved* to the web.
Least she is now pain free.
My thoughts & prayers go to her family at this time.

I think it can be a tough season for many people.

Feeling a little better this year because I finally sought some help for the depression.

It seems to be helping somewhat, too early to really tell but I am sleeping so much better.

Just wanted to let you know Poppy how much of an Inspiration you have been to me personally.
