~Judi was quite a silly, quirky and fun-loving sister, wife, mother and grandmother. These are a few of the traits that we all enjoyed and will miss the most--laughing and being silly with her! Her family knows…Judi has gotten carried away--She’s off….40% or more J~

Well, mom was a nut. I loved her so much. It is hard to believe that she is really gone but we all know that she is seeing some really beautiful things in the sweet by-and-by. Our family is resilient and we will dig through this struggle and become closer and stronger! I will miss you a bunch mom.

I, too, am more like 90% off...

We loved the extra time that we got to spend with Judi and Tim for several years at our Friday Afternoon Bible Study. Thanks, Tim for being a great song leader for us. The singing was always a bit "interesting" when you were out. I always wanted to see what animal picture was on Judi's T-shirt that day! Always quiet, but a great dry sense of humor... with Judi, less was more. Her eyes would light up when she talked about her family, and they were ALWAYS at the top of our prayer list. I can only imagine the tour of paradise that John is giving her now. I hope there are animals provided in heaven so that her joy is complete.

Aunt Judi and I exchanged letters (real letters) for decades. We enjoyed sharing stories about our pets and other critters. She was my Godmother and a wonderful friend too. I know if we lived closer we would have enjoyed pet sitting together and many visits to the zoo. She will always have a special place in my heart. She was such a good, kind soul.
