Bill Crider is reporting that his wife Judy passed away earlier today from cancer. Judy usually accompanied Bill to conventions, and I don’t recall ever seeing him at one where she wasn’t with him. She was a quiet and gracious lady who was well loved by all who knew her. I didn’t know her well, but I always enjoyed being in any group of which she was a member. When she spoke, her comments were always insightful. Judy had been battling cancer for a number of years, and I always admired the courage she and Bill displayed when I saw them. She will be missed very much.
My condolences to Bill and his family; they will be in my prayers.
