Our sincere sympathy to Lonnie, Amber, Keith, Alex and Zachary on Judy's passing. She was a great lady and very funny; and really appreciated getting to know her so well, as she is the mother of my daughter-in-law, wife of dear Lonnie, and grandmother to our two grandsons, Alex and Zachary. Wish we could be with you at this time, but you all know our circumstances. Much love to all of you, Steve and Karen, Dad and Karen, Granny K and Pappaw
