Rest In Peace Judy. You were the best sister ever. From your favorite brother who shares your birthday today, March 31. I cannot think of a single time that you were ever cross with me, even when I broke your lollipop on Senior Kiddy Day. You were a true Southern Lady, so graceful. You were a mother, a sister, and a friend. I wish that I had one more hour with you to hug, but then again neither of us were good huggers, we inherited that from our mother! You know when I speak you can hear a Judy dialect because you took care of me to age 7 when you graduated Oakhaven and moved back to where our mother raised you as a child raising two children, you and your brother Joyal. You will live on in our hearts. I know you are at peace with our Maker. Your life was well lived. You did an exceptional job. I am so proud to have been your brother.
