Grateful for memories of the long-ago summer when Judy, Kay, and I rented a cottage at the beach so all the cousins--Phil, Alyson, Dottie, Jamie, Wright, Liza, William and Rob--could have fun together. Sorry we couldn't have done it many more times. And, going back even further, I well remember my first meeting with Jim's future wife. I thought that day I'd never seen a lovelier-looking girl.
Heartfelt sympathy to all of Judy's and Jim's family, along with Jamie and Kay.

I was so very sorry to hear of Judy's death. She was a dear cousin and I have many fond memories of our childhood in Stonega, VA as well as Kingsport, TN. May the good Lord be with her family during this time of sadness and grief.
