So sorry to hear of your mom's passing. I never did get to making that lunch date with her.
I can remember her with a chuckle, she could always make me laugh. I had some great times with her, whether helping her out at the salon, way back when, or babysitting and staying the night and spying on the neighbors. We laughed about that the last time we talked.
Judy was a good old gal and I thought of her often and still will with a smile.
Hugs to you kids.

Jan (Schelstrate) Branson
