Auntie J,
I know you're not gonna be able to directly read this and respond, but I know you can see it in heaven. Thank you for everything you did for our family. You made everyone so happy and made the family full of life. I know you are happy now with Uncle Julian, Uncle Jack, Jeff, and Maw Maw. I hope I make you proud as you look down on me throughout the rest of my life. I can't wait to see you one day. I love you so much!

Aunt Judy,
It has been a week since you went home to be with the Lord. We all miss you very much. Your funeral was as lovely as you were in life. It also had your sense of humor. Heather set off her car alarm about the time you were to be carried from the hearse. Everything was quiet then beep, beep, beep... John's face was a bit red. You would have laughed... maybe you did. I am so sad that you are gone but so thankful you are no longer in pain and are with Uncle Julian, Maw Maw, Jeff, Uncle Jack, and Paw Paw, all of our beloved family. I know that you were a kind, generous, beautiful person, and I am very glad that I was able to call you my aunt. I love you. Until we meet again, Aunt Judy, go with God.

Judy, my sister and friend. I love you so very much. You were such a beautiful lady and always a smile on that beautiful face. I know you are with Julian now and that does give me peace. I will miss the good times we shared. You, Peggy, and I were best friends as well as sisters. You will be missed by everyone who knew you. I love you so very much. God bless you Judy. ❤️❤️❤️

My memories of Judy begin in middle school when we played basketball together, and all the way through High School. She was a great leader, competitive and gave her all to win.
Judy was kind, always thinking of others. She loved and adored her sisters. She loved her nieces and nephews and was so proud of their accomplishments. She was a strong Christian who loved the Lord.
I will miss her but I will see her again one day.

Judy, you are one in a million. I loved you as a sister and as a friend. You will always be in my heart. The good times we had living together will be forever in my mind. Max, Sammy and I will be so lonesome without you.

Love always,
Peggy

People say, "If you can be anything in this life, be kind". Judy was the definition of kindness. She was beautiful inside and out. I can guarantee there is not one person who met her that didn't instantly like her. Judy's beauty, quick wit and charming personality always drew people to her. But, her kindness kept them close. I will miss her.
I love you, cuz!

Judy often had a smile on her face and a twinkle in her eye. She appreciated a good joke. Judy was very close to her sisters Doris and Peggy. When the three of them were together the one liners would fly. I enjoyed our conversations about her travels and the state of our world. She offered many interesting observations. This is a real loss not just for her family but also for her friends. She will be missed.
