The family of Judith A. Kingsbury has received the following condolences.
We are so sorry to hear of Judy's passing. We were so happy to see her at the last class reunion. Please know that we loved her very much.
Morrie and Mary
My condolences to the Kingsbury family and friends. It is a painful thing to lose a precious love one in death, regardless of how long they have lived. Even Jesus wept when Lazarus died (John 11:35) and it pains our loving Heavenly Father, too. He did not purpose his human family to grow old and die but purpose us to live and enjoy life. It is still his purpose (Psalms 37:11, 29). He calls death an enemy that will be removed forever (1 Corinthians 15:26; Isaiah 25:8). He promised to awaken our love ones in the memorial tombs from asleep in death__ Isaiah 26:19 “Your dead will rise ...Awake and shout joyfully you residents in the dust! ...the earth will let those powerless in death come to life." He will then reverse the aging process__ What a delight it will be to see them again to enjoy life as our Creator purposed (Psalms 145:16)! Allow these words to keep comforting all of you.
Max, so sorry to hear about the passing of your wife--I will remember her in my prayers.
Randi and Tom: so very to hear about your mom's death, she is in a better place and at peace.
Chris & I were sad to hear of Judy's passing. We will miss her. She was a great role model to us younger cousins. We will be thinking of the family tomorrow and in the weeks to come. You are in our thoughts & prayers. I will be in Minnesota mid-Sept. so I hope to see some of you then. Love to all, Chris & Carol
So sorry for your loss. Your mom was a fun lady I have a lot of fun memories of her and Max while we were growing up in Olivia and Willmar. May my cousin Judy Rest In Peace she will now join the rest of the Weir family for a great reunion.
