Hi, I was a colleague of Judy's in the labs at GI in Cambridge and Andover a long time ago. We were the 3rd and 4th person hired into the early Quality labs for Genetics Institute in Cambridge; we both worked and played hard--that was one of Judy's mantras. She also had a sign on her desk: Failure is the Path of Least Resistance---she always had a lot of drive, humor, zest for life, satirical wit and smart as anything. We worked literally side by side, as the lab grew crowded with new hires--and sometimes we danced to the radio. Her personality is unforgettable. All fondness, Peri
