There are so many of us from Jonesboro-Hodge High School, from the Class of '67, who cherish fond memories of Judy. That is especially true of those who were classmates, but also playmates from the paper mill town of Hodge, where she grew up as a child. There were also other schoolmates with whom I have spoken, who vividly remember their great times with Judy growing up and being involved in high school activities with her.

My fondest memories of her were the days that we rode the bus to La Tech each day to our classes there. I was the bus driver who picked her up as we made our way to college in Ruston each day. She would board the bus, and I would always greet her with something new each morning. I would usually inject a little humor into the greeting, and out would come her signature quiet smile or maybe even the sheepish grin, if the humor was good enough. She loved to have a little fun, and through that, we became even greater friends.

As I reflect upon the sweet little girl who was Judy Vines, I will always carry wonderful memories in my mind of a girl who was a true and solid friend to those she befriended, and who left an indelible impression on the lives of those she touched. The Class of '67 has lost a dear and beloved friend in Judy.

I have had the pleasure to live next door to Judy and Bob for 4 years. I will certainly miss seeing her sitting out on the porch and talking to her.
