Journal entry by Jim Schmidt

This is the hardest post I'll ever have to make.  Judi passed away early last evening.  My Sweetheart, wife, best friend, companion, partner and so much more is no longer suffering and has gone to join our Lord and wait for me.  I really can't find the words to describe how blessed I have been to have her in my life every day for 16 years and 19+ years overall.  She was always at my side pulling in the same direction.  She was a wonderful person in every regard.  She touched so many lives and all were blessed by that, especially me.  Even through all of this she was an angel.  I can't find the words that even come close to adequately relate how much I already do, and will, miss her.  I know that those of you who knew her well will too.  I take comfort in knowing she is in her heavenly home free of worry, pain and suffering. I'm sure she is in awe of her beautiful and wonderful new surroundings and being in the presence of our Lord and Savior, Jesus.
