Judith L. Jones

The following is an email that Judy sent to some of her friends less than an hour before the attack on 11 September. I think [it] epitomizes the kind of friend she was to everyone. 

I feel that even in heaven, we can all count on her to be there throughout the years for us. 

– Michelle Bush, daughter 

my friend, my companion, 
through good times and bad. 
My friend, 
my buddy, 
through happy and sad. 
Beside me you stand, 
beside me you walk, 
you’re there to listen, 
you’re there to talk, 
with happiness, 
with smiles, 
with pain and tears, 
I know you’ll be there, throughout the years! 

You are all good friends to me and I am grateful to you.
