Justice, Hopefully

Friends of John Judge hope Thursday's arrest will provide closure.

As many of you are aware this past October, our family has suffered two very tragic heartbreaks.

One is John Judge, our dear Zio Tony's best-friend was struck and killed by an unknown driver crossing our family restaurant, Astro's Pizza and Felice's Ristorante. It's been months for the killer to be found.

Dear Tony, Lupo's, Stipanov's, and, mostly John's relatives, have been devastated. John was always at Astro's. Being new to the family, I didn't know him very well, but I did know he was an Astro's Regular and keep our Zio company on our slow days. For one, it was so sudden, tragic, for a human to take another life and simply have no remorse and run like it never happened.

It's devastating — the World we now live in. However, today that man will getting arraigned today at 9:30 a.m. "He is Edward L. Orr, a 30-year-old Montauk resident, was arrested Thursday afternoon in connection with the death of John Judge, East Hampton Town Police Detectives confirmed early on Friday morning."

So today let's all have a moment of silence that justice is fair and hearts can begin to heal. And Second, "Mama Deet", as my brother-in-law called her we know your resting in peace and your two amazing daughters now have two guardian angels looking over them.

So today, Dear JJ, I hope we can finally put an end to this tragedy. We know it can't bring you back, but it will ease hearts and most importantly you deserve justice. Rest in Peace JJ.

Please leave only kind comments.
