My Wish For You

I wish I could give you many more years.
I wish I could erase away all of your tears.

I want to take away all of your pain.
I want to give you sunshine in the rain.

May each new day be a perfect gift. 
May love surround you, may your spirits lift.

If someone had to describe you, so many words come to mind.
Beauty and grace, a heart so kind.

You radiate warmth like a blazing fire.
You are courage and wisdom. You truly inspire.

You attract like a magnet beautiful things.
You sparkle and shine like a diamond ring.

You light up a room when you walk in.
If someone feels sad, you can make them grin.

You are elegant and charming. You know right from wrong.
You are the melody from a beautiful love song.

You are a breath of fresh air on a hot summer's night.
When there is darkness, you turn on the light.

I do not want these words to make you cry.
I do not want to ever say goodbye.

I believe miracles really do come true.
No one deserves one more than you.

Please know how many lives you touch.
These words are my present. You are loved so much.

We are so thankful for knowing Judy for over 32 years. The memories we have will be treasured. Bob and I are grateful for the generous way of life she taught us to live our lives. So many of our silly expressions come from Judy. Thank you family for sharing your Judy with us. She spoke of you all so often that we thought we were part of the family. She was so proud of you all. We are fortunate to have a loving and caring mentor that always inspired the best. We will continue to make you proud Judy.

Always in our hearts,
Kim and Bob Littlefield

You have been with me since the minute I was born. I don’t know how to live my life without you being a part of it. I have reached to call you several times in the last few days. My heart is broken, but I know you are in a much better place. You are with our parents, our grandparents , Jimbo, Shirley, Donna, Drema, aunt Vivian and little Teddy. You worked long and hard you deserve to rest you were the best big sister anyone could’ve ever been. I loved you then and I love you now and I will love you until we meet again. Until then rest in the embrace of the angels and bask in the glow of God. You have earned your place in heaven. I love you.

Respected and admired Judy accomplished so much in life. But above all her family was most important. A beautiful lady. Loving, kind and compassionate. Always just a phone call away.
H.T. and I will be forever grateful for all Judy did for us and our beloved sister, mother and father.
As cousins we laughed a lot and cried a lot. And during our saddest times Judy was the clue that held my family together. We were blessed to have Judy in our lives.
Even with sadness in my heart, tears in my eyes I still smile. “The song ended but the melody lingers on”.
