I am a debtor, if 1 of 2 judgement creditor dies, do I still owe the surviving creditor the entire judgement amount?

Question Details:

My ex-business partners got a judgment against me for old referral fees they alleged that I owed them after our firm broke up. They had brought a summary process motion and I was in process of selling property to pay them. Suddenly, 1 of the 2partners died. Do I owe the surviving partner the entire judgment? There is nothing in any agreement about right of survivorship or anything that said I would pay referral fees to heirs and assigns, etc.
