  1. John, I fondly remember the playful times with Judy and my sister Jackie in Milner, Macon, Atlanta and Elon. While Judy was visiting with us in Elon she was in the early stages of measles and after washing our hair we poured vinegar over our heads as condition and shine. Oh my! Judy screamed and we had no idea what was wrong. We found out quickly that she had early stages of measles and Aunt Julia rushed to her side. All to fast this beautiful smiling, laughing girl has gone to rest. We shall miss her. My prayers are for you and her many friends in Georgia.
    Cousin, June

  2. Dearest John,

  26. Dear John,
    You are the reason that Judy and I became friends over 10 years ago. You brought her into my life just by coincidence, but our friendship was no coincidence. It grew over the years and I knew I could always call Judy anytime and she would be there to give a listening ear, never judging and oh, so kind with always a smile. Judy was so smart; I loved having lunch with her to discuss what was going on in the world, get good advice on movies, and had some deep discussions on religion and politics. I felt we could talk about just anything. She was always such a joy and I will miss her terribly. I lift my prayers up to you and may God bring you comfort in the coming weeks.
    With heartfelt sympathy – Joan
