FREEPER JUDYB1938 WILL BE TAKEN OFF LIFE SUPPORT 5/5/06
e-mail from son Victor

I received this from former freeper donnalyn. It came from JudyB1938 son Victor:

Last Friday mom went in for a routine heart catherization for clogged arteries. The doctor, in his infinite wisdom, decided that she had to have an immediate triple bypass. She recovered, as expected, the next day. Then, on Monday, she has fluid build up around the heart and coded. Her brain was deprived of oxygen for too long and she is now effectively brain dead. She will be taken off of life support tomorrow.

Judy B lasted posted on 4/25/06 and on 4/21/06 actually posted on Heart Disease the focus shifts to women. You can see her posts here http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/user-posts?id=20872.

Oh father in heaven who knows the heart of all your children, strengthen your daughter and the family... give them courage and strength for all they have to face. We know you are a just judge... and your ways are above our ways.

Amen.

Dear Valued Friends and Peers,

I am truly grieved right now. I have known Judy on-line now since the late 90's and although I talked with her on the phone a few times, I am really disappointed right now I never had a chance to meet her face to face.

Image hosted by TinyPic.comNo pinging the lists tonight or reading the news. I thought it important a face was put on the grand lady this thread is about. Too often the people we meet at Free Republic are just screen names on a monitor. At least I had a chance to talk to her.

Image hosted by TinyPic.comJudy was the very person who recruited me to Free Republic. In fact, I still have her very first email to me saved on a zip disk. I saved all the years of correspondence she sent me since then.

Image hosted by TinyPic.com

The bulk of my personal website was due to her. She was always sending me and our small circle of friends interesting links and articles which from time to time proved to be invaluable. I can't remember the number of times she sent research material through on any subject I was dealing with at the time.

Image hosted by TinyPic.comOther times, she would just send some nutty picture through that would come totally out of left field. The most recent one was a picture of this very heavy woman and a little poem about belly button rings. My Wife was looking over my shoulder and we just laughed out loud, it was so outrageous. I forwarded it to a few people and told them Judy sent it, with a "LOL!" She wrote back laughing, too.

Image hosted by TinyPic.comBut that was Judy. On-line her gracious, loving, and funny personality always overwhelmed you. I could spend days going through her old emails to me, consistently filled with encouragement and praise. I often called her my on-line Mom. She spent so much time on me.

All these pictures she sent to me over the years. I always liked the one of her in the front seat of the car making that face, I think she was around thirty in that one. I symbolizes everything about her personality and character. In the end, she was one of many older people I keep company with who hold that old school Conservative philosophy.

She maintained a website Here:
Judy Bartlett

Some of the links might not work because there are errors in the HTML.

Although, yes, I am comforted she is in the presence of the Lord, it is still an incredible loss and sense of sadness. What a wonderful life. She was a great friend, patriot American, and truly a part of Free Republic history.

I hope her son knows our thoughts and prayers are with him. This has to be a very trying time, and I can't say I understand, for I have not experienced pain like that.

God be with him and comfort Judy.

That is a very beautiful tribute to Judy, Mike. God Bless you and thank you for sharing all the memories and lovely photos of Judy.

Judy was beautiful as a child and a very beautiful woman. Many of her posts show the beauty which shown from within.

Thanks again, Mike, for posting mom's website. Man, the grief sure is hitting now but reading over her site is starting the healing process. Thank you.






Judy: I cried myself when I read this about your mama. It may help you to understand WHY she was crying. She was not crying for herself. She was crying for you, her child. She can't stand the thought of leaving you alone without her.

I feel the same way. I get so sad and also cry when I think of how my children will react when I am dead and gone. It's really going to be hard on some of them to not have my love and stabilizing effect.

I learned when I was young that the older you get, the more precious life becomes. What I didn't understand is that it's precious because of our loved ones, not because of ourselves. I couldn't care less about staying alive for ME. I just hate it that I have to leave my children alone.

Life is certainly fickle. I found out that my beloved St. Bernard, Caleb, had bone cancer on Feb. 3rd while I was visiting mom in Arkansas. That very day, BabyLuv, Caleb's sister, turned up missing and certainly presumed dead. At the time, who could ever have imagined that mom would precede Caleb? Ain't it just amazing the twists and turns that life throws at you?!

Judy took me under her wing on this site a long time ago.

Thanks for the ping, the note, pictures, and links.

May God keep her. She was one of the good ones.
