My Aunt Judy, was a very classy, fun lady. When I was a little girl, I did enjoy visiting her and Uncle George, he was the best!

I didn't get to see her as much as I would've liked, however my mom (her sister Clara Jane) and I did get to go and visit 2 years ago. So glad we did! I'm glad she is dancing with Uncle George and pain free!

My, Aunt Judy-
To Cousin Debbie and Cousin Ricky
I am deeply saddened to hear of the loss of your Mother and I send you my love and sympathy.
I have an indelible childhood memory of looking at your Mother and Dad in our living room or Mammaw’s home and thinking they were an awesome , glamorous golden couple. They had contagious smiles and laughter that lifted the spirts of anyone in the room with them. I idolized Aunt Judy -her Hollywood beauty and style. And another memory-Aunt Judy was loving and gave her full attention to me when we talked, a kind gift to a child in those days when children were only to be seen and not heard.
You were fortunate to grow up with two kind and loving parents.
Peace be with you Debbie & Ricky
Love and hugs from your
Cousin Doris Elizabeth Meunier

I'm going to miss this fancy, classy, sassy little mama! She always dressed so nice and looked top notch. I love how she would tell jokes! She was so fun to be around and everyone knows she could party like no other. I will miss her. I have nothing but good memories of her. XOXO
