Dear Family,

I have wonderful memories of Sister Judd as I knew her for years in the Oakland 4th Ward. I grew up in that ward and Clara was a constant light and friend as a young boy. I could always count on a smile and hug at church meetings. If my memory serves me right, she also taught me either in Sunday School or Primary. She was always someone that brought a smile to my face and warmed my heart. Love and best wishes to you Steve. --Elder Ron Bybee, Sweden Stockholm Mission - City of Byske
