To the family of Judy L. Swain, It was a very sad moment to hear of Judys passing. She was a very kind & loving spirit. My son Kyle & myself have some of the most wonderful memories of her love, caring & kindness. Judy was definitely a giver in life to any & all that she cared about. Bethann, Michael, Bob along with the rest of her for boys & grandchildren, I pray that you all find some peace in your loss knowing that Judy loved you all so very much. She came to see me several years ago and the only focus she had was being with her family. May the peace and love of Jesus Christ be with you all.

There are not enough words to share a lifetime of memories, or enough words to express how much I will miss making more. I pray God's peace to your loved ones.

Jeff, Brandon, Justin, and Ryan,
My sincere sympathy in the passing of your wonderful Mom. I have so many memories and shared much laughter with her over your and my kids, Bridget and Zach,'s young years at St. Francis. Sadly, we lost touch as you, kids, grew but her joy of life and love of family has stayed with me. Treasure your memories and may you soon find peace.
God bless! Love, Eileen Gustafson (Mrs. G)
