In my prayers and thoughts of Judy over the past week or so, I have realized that she set an example for me, silly enough, because we shared the same name. For most of my years she was the only other Judy I knew. And although far away and older than I, she left a mark on me because, somewhat unconsciously, I looked to her as an example of what a "Judy" should be like. Her reputation was as woman who was kind, generous, a baker, family-oriented, and servant-like – high standards indeed! I'm sure she never knew the high regard I felt for her and for that I'm especially sad. However, I feel honored and privileged to share her name and will forever esteem to follow her example with the same grace and joy that she displayed.

Blessings, love and hugs to my cousins. Cherish your memories and the closeness you had with one another. You are all so dear and special to our family.

Hugs and prayers,
Judy Curry Major

As the obit mentions, with Judy's baking skills, she put smiles on all the nephew/neices' faces during our Knight Christmas gatherings. And she made sure she also baked Christmas cookies with and without peanuts due to allergies. They were delicious!
