Support for Judy

***Please do not share this crowd funding campaign via any public social media outlet out of respect for Judy.  Judy is an extremely proud person and it's taken all of her closest friends to finally get her blessing to create this campaign. Preferred methods are word of mouth, emails, private messaging, and good old fashioned phone calls***

Judy Sherwin is the most sincere, loving, and hard-working person I know. Her entrepreneurial spirit, larger than life personality, and strong work ethic have endeared her to her colleagues and friends alike. 

2 years ago Judy began having issues walking due to a spinal injury yet she continued to work full-time in an industry that requires a lot of physical dexterity and mental stamina. Despite the cards she was dealt and her physical limitations, she pushed on and even found a new job in the industry. 

There comes a point where even the strongest among us need some help. Judy lost her only son Scott Kaplan last month. She loved her son more than life itself and this type of loss is something that no mother should ever have to endure.  After Judy's medical condition took hold, her son assisted her with supplemental health insurance and some living expenses to help ease some of the burden.

Unfortunately the period after Scott's death has been followed by a dispute with his last will and testament leaving Judy in a difficult financial situation indefinitely.   Judy continues to push on somehow despite the physical, emotional, mental, and financial burdens she faces. 

Here is where you can help. This fund is set up to assist Judy during this extremely difficult transition and to provide her some stability during this time of need. Judy is as loving as she is proud hence this fund must be kept private and limited to friends and family. 

We ask that you do not share this on social media outlets but instead spread the word via email, phone calls, text messages, private messages or personal visits. Please give as much as you are able. Every amount helps.

If you wish to pay by check or cash or if you have any questions or need clarification please contact Manny Capozzi through this GoFundMe page. 

The best part of modern life is the ability to bring community together to support each other in times of happiness as well as times of despair.
