Dear Family, I grew up with Judy Gebhart in Ashland, Ohio, attending many school classes and functions with her and graduating together. When I saw her at a reunion a decade or so ago, we had a great conversation and she was the same brilliant and caring Judy with which I grew up. I was sad to learn that she was ill and very sad to learn of her passing. I always liked Judy and we were both kind and friendly toward one another. Her goodness will live on through her family and friends, I am sure. I will always remember her fondly. You have my deepest sympathy.

Jack Hartman
