I didn’t know Ms. Judy very well. But I know her children Michelle and Shaun. They are both hard working, kind, generous and respectable people. Ms Judy and Mr. Tommy did an excellent job raising them. Which I guess says a lot about Ms Judy and Mr Tommy, so in a sense I did know her. Hard working, kind, generous and respectable. Rest In Peace Ms Judy and thank you for those delicious pecan candies that you used to make for us every Christmas . It really made our holiday so special.

Tommy, Michelle, Shaun and family, I am heartbroken to hear of Judy's passing. I will always remember her kind and pleasant spirit. I am so happy that we had the opportunity to go to lunch together at Jefferson Island just before all of this Covid stuff. It was very much like old times being with my cousins again. I am sure that she cherished that experience as well. You all are in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. Love and peace, Cheryl and David Lynch and family

Our condolences to the family. We were fortunate enough to know Tommy and Judy for many years and always enjoyed going out to eat with them and also going to the houseboat and spend a few days. We also made a "few" trips to the casino of course. We were in the shrimp festival together and Mary played Pokeno with Judy and Hazel for many years. We will surely miss these times with her.
