  1. I couldn’t have gotten to known a better woman. I enjoyed every conversation and laugh with Memaw. She taught me a lot about life in the short time I knew her and I will make sure to take everything she said and apply it to my life. My heart was touched by you, Tristan and April. You will be missed but I know you’re giving your honey sugars in heaven my dear. – Amanda Sims

  2. Aunt Judith, will be missed by her loving family and friends. She is welcome with open arms by her sisters in heaven. We will remember being with her as we grew up and listening about the stories of their childhood. We send love and prayers to all. Love your cousin Victoria (LaBo) King

  3. I’ll never forget how surprised we were to see your mom at the parade in Mt Vernon. It was so nice to see that Judy hadn’t changed at all! Mom and dad (Virgil & Mary)sure enjoyed visiting with all of you that day.
    Your mom sent such a beautiful card when dad passed away and at that time I just didn’t know how to tell her that mom was in the nursing home with alzheimer’s. I will always cherish the memories of our families getting together all those years ago and the fun we used to have. God Bless and never forget the good times…those are life’s blessings! Carol (Kelley) Currence

  4. Sorry for your loss, Aunt Judy was a fun loving person. We will never forget her beautiful smile and her contagious laugh. And her love to dance! Rest In Peace Aunt Judy, give everyone there hugs and kisses for us. Hugs and prayers going out to you cousins. Love always Jon and Jessica Heller and family
    Trying this again because I don’t think it saved the first one I wrote,LOL

  8. April, Dana, Mark and families,
    I am sorry to hear of Memaw’s passing. I was just telling someone the other day the things I learned from her. When we were there for any family holiday meal, there was so much food, always our favorites. She taught me the secret to perfect pie crust, the best stuffed peppers and cabbage rolls. I still make them the way she taught me. You have my deepest Sympathy,

    Kate Thomas
