Aunt Judy was a kind of second mom back in the day, a more permissive and fun lady for me to be around compared to Aunt Bobbie (my mom)!! Hee. Good times staying overnight and getting in on sugary cereals, Texas sheet cake, tacos, etc. Always tolerating our restlessness in church...handing out pieces of gum to pacify us kids! Her daughter (Cousin Rhonda) is like a sister, so I was thrilled that I could hang out there, stay over night and not feel like an only child. As I grew older and had my own kids, Aunt Judy doted on them as if they were her very own grandsons! Everybody loved Aunt Judy's show of love and life. I know Heaven rejoices at her coming, especially He whom she served well.

Momma, you were so full of life. Sometimes I thought you were bigger than life. Not even the loss of your speech kept you from communicating and sharing your love and big heart. God certainly shined his light through your bright smile. I will miss you so very much. Mom, I love you too much and three much and four much!

Kirk and Rhonda, We didn't know your Mother at all but were always aware of all the good care that you gave her, Rhonda. We are so sad for your loss, MOMS are always SO hard to say "Goodbye to". Deepest sympathy to you and your family. Carol and Norm

Aunt Judy was such a joy to be around. Her hugs and kisses are a wonderful childhood memory for me. She was so gracious and kind hearted. Heaven is lucky to have her!
