Judi Died Last Night

Judi Lundy died last night at 11:15 pm. According to her son, she went peacefully and without pain.

She was Fan GOH at Concave 26, from March 4-6 this year, and I had a picture of her from that, which I wanted to post here. I can’t find it.

She was a wonderful, caring person, and those of us who were lucky enough to know her will miss her very much.

Thank you for your prayers for her, and for keeping her in your thoughts, and thank you for once again letting a little bit of my life intrude into yours.

    I’ve been offline and only now have read this. I’m so sorry to hear it. My deepest sympathies to her family and friends.

    I’ve been away and have just read the news. Warm thoughts and lots of love to you and to Judi’s family.

    My heart goes out to you and to the rest of Judi’s family. She does sound like a wonderful person – and the world is somehow dimmed at losing her. Wonderful people help brighten the lives of others who in turn brighten the lives of others and so on. She will be missed.

    My condolences to you, Judi’s family and friends, and everyone whose lives she touched.

    This is very sad news. My condolences to Judi’s family, friends and aquaintences. One of the great things about a community like this site, is that we can all support each other when we need it.

    Holly,

    I would like once again to thank you for the support you have shown to Judi over the past few years of her problem, and I would like to thank all of your correspondents for their kind and supportive words during the trial of her illness and her death.

    Judi was the Hospitality Suite Hostess for the two Louisville conventions, Rivercon and it’s successor Conglomeration, for the last fifteen years or so, and was sort of a combination den mother and friend/confessor particularly for those of us who volunteered to help with schlepping soda, cutting fruit and vegetables, making grocery runs, and all of the other little tasks which go into a successful Hospitality suite for a 700 person SF convention. She has been a good and supportive friend both in person and by e-mail (she was one of my most reliable joke-forwarders 🙂 for the years of my late wife’s health problems and in the almost five years since her death. (That’s another long story…)

    For those of you who recall the requests for prayers for her grandson Isaiah a couple of years ago, Isaiah is doing well though I’m sure he will miss his granny whom he has barely had time to know.

    Take care all, and once again, thank you and a special thank you to Holly.

    Hugs. I’m sorry to hear of this. Prayers for Judi’s family and friends.

    I’m so sorry. Judi sounds like a beautiful person, and her loss diminishes the world…my deepest condolences to you and Judi’s other friends and family.

  • arrvee Mar 29, 2006 @ 16:16

    My deep sympathies and prayers for comfort to all her family and friends. Even when you see it coming, there’s no real way to prepare for this. I hope everyone at least got the chance to say good-bye. It’s not much, but it helps a little.

    The pain will fade some over time, but memories of special people remain fresh. May Judi’s memory keep all of you company through the rest of your life’s journey.

  • JeriT Mar 29, 2006 @ 15:57

    I’m so sorry for your loss, Holly.

  • Rick Mar 29, 2006 @ 15:55

    I can only offer my sympathy and prayers.

  • hollylisle Mar 29, 2006 @ 15:20

    Thank you so much for your compassion and concern. Her family and friends have been given the link to this post by a mutual friend, and may be stopping by.

  • TimK Mar 29, 2006 @ 14:41

    That’s sad. It still amazes me that something that happens every day can have such a profound effect when it happens around us. You and Judi’s family are in my thoughts and prayers.

    The picture will turn up; post it when it does and, no worries until then. We look forward to the sharing.

    Judi leaves the same way she arrived in this world: infinitely loved. May cherished memories of her chase away the pain and sorrow. May the mourning hours last only as long as they’re needed, and may her family and friends have the strength to see them through their sadness. Thoughts and prayers for everyone close to her.

  • JaCop Mar 29, 2006 @ 13:40

    I’m truly sorry to hear that and I hope everyone who loved her understands that, sad as it is, death can be a sweet release from suffering. I watched my father and wife battle cancer and it’s the toughest fight anyone will ever face. I’m sure she battled hard, but there comes a point when the battle needs to be set aside.

    My thoughts and prayers are with everyone who cared for her.

  • unxplaindfires Mar 29, 2006 @ 12:53

    Death is not something that can be overcome, but the pain it brings can be. I’m sorry she died, Judi sounded like a truly good person, a rarity these days. To a life well lived and a death hard fought.

  • shay Mar 29, 2006 @ 12:27

    sorry to hear about your loss, thoughts and prayers with you and her family.

  • The English Rose Mar 29, 2006 @ 12:21

    I’m sorry to hear that, Holly. Praying for healing for you and her family and friends.

  • TinaK Mar 29, 2006 @ 11:44

    I am so sorry to hear about Judi. As Mary said, prayers continue.

  • Mary Mar 29, 2006 @ 9:55

    I’m so sorry. Hugs and prayers continue…
