Ahh Judy my friend! When you and I met in Vancouver last year, I could see that you are a strong woman. Your strength has helped Norm through these final months... and now he is at peace and no longer has any discomfort. Hugs to you and your family, Judy. I wish your road ahead to be a smooth one.

Judy,
My heart goes out to you at this time. You were an incredible partner and caregiver to Norm. He was blessed to have you by his side. May God bless and strengthen you at this time of sorrow.

My 14 yr old niece told my sister just before her death from cancer - don't cry for me because I have seen where I am going and it is beautiful. My sister said she was crying because she will miss her but will see her again on the other side.

Dear Judy
I am so sorry to hear learn of the sad news that Norm has passed away. We have communicated so much during the last few months. Encephalitis is a horrible illness and more needs to be done to heighten the awful affect it has on sufferers and their families.

My heart and love is with you and your family at this time.
Much love Jan-ann

Dear Judy. You and Norm have fought the fight. And your dedication to him and his battle against this hideous disease has been exemplary. May we all vow to push for earlier diagnosis, more comprehensive treatment, and a cure... all in his honor. As you heal from your loss (our loss!) I hope you'll stay in our circle and continue the fight. We need each other. Blessings to you... and Peace to Norm.
