Condolences from Jimmy Judge, Colleague:
When people say “they broke the mould,” they’re referring to this remarkable man! An incredibly compassionate officer and leader, a good husband, father, and friend. We didn’t realise you’d be leaving us so soon. Jimmy Judge, may God bless you. During these trying times, may God comfort your wife and son, other family members, and many coworkers and friends. May you all find brightness during your grief. It may only be a spark deep within you in these early weeks, but let that small spark guide you through the dark mourning journey.
Let the light that has always lived in this great man expand and enlighten your paths as you stumble over the roots of pessimism and despair. In your mourning journey, that path will feel quite lonely. May the light on that path guide you all along your way, and may you turn around and discover God. Big Jimmy, rip. Thank you for having such a significant impact on my life and future. I can’t repay you for the mental judo and stability you gave me. My heartfelt condolences to his family and all in blue for your loss. May his soul rest in peace.
