Dear Dale,
I am so sorry about Judy. I have many fond memories of her from Jefferson Avenue Junior High School (she was our student council president, I think, back in a time when girls didn't usually get elected to such offices) and from Arkansas High. Most recently, I remember being with you and her at the 50th reunion. She will be missed by many people who remember and admired her.
Sincerely yours,
Ronda Carpenter

Judy is a beautiful soul! Not only did we work together at TASD but Judy was a loyal Mary Kay customer for years. We camp at Dequeen Lake, and I'd always watch for Judy as we'd drive by your place on Hwy. 71. Even after you moved, I still think of her as we pass by the former home I Dequeen. My prayers are with you all! May God be with your family and give you peace and joy!
