Judy was an amazing person. I spent a lot of time with her as a child and she always loved me like her own. I spent most of my days at her mother's house with Judy Sonya Betty and Jim and Christy was a baby. They were my family and Judy was very special to me and will always hold a special place in my heart. RIP Judy until we meet again

RIP Judy.
As far as my memories go back you and your family are a part of them. We have always called each other family (cousins) even though we weren’t blood related we were family!
We were with y’all when aunt Betty passed just as y’all were with us when Momma died…. And now you are in Heaven with them so give them our ❤️
Sonja and Jim Tom, I know your hearts are broken and no words can ease your pain.. Keep her in your heart and memories to help you through all the hard days to come!
Jim Tom….. sad to say…. But, our mommas can teach us everything except how to live without them. 💔
Thoughts and Prayers with you all!❤️🙏
