Dear Judy, Your mother was a wonderful women, mother, and wife. She was so dedicated to caring for my Uncle Hector for so many years. The last time I saw her was at my father's, Vince, funeral. I told her how beautiful she still was. I am so sad, and sorry for our loss. You will be in my upmost thoughts and prayers. All my love, Your cousin, Elaine

To me she was and will always be "MJ". She was a special lady filled with kindness and lots of spunk. She was a true blessing in my life. Rest in peace "MJ".
Judy and Wayne my thoughts and prayers are with you. I am sorry for your loss.
