God has definitely taken home a smiling Angel. I loved Judy as a second Mom pretty much all of my life. The memories and laughter will always remain in my heart as I share the grief and pain with the family and entire community as we will forever miss her. A special thanks to the family for opening their home to me, allowing me to stay for the funeral services. God Bless Judy and her entire family. I love you all. Mo
