Gosh, the memories are many. I don’t even know where to begin. Let’s just say that I will never smell or taste another cough drop without thinking of grandma. She ALWAYS had a Halls around the house. Everytime I eat neopolitan icecream it takes me back to those loving childhood memories of sitting at her kitchen table on 14th street. Gradnma made the BEST icecream cones. Fishing always reminds me of grandpa and her. Being out on the water, I’ll be looking for her lovely smile amongst the ripples. Grandma had a way of making you feel welcomed and like part of our family, no matter who you were. You couldnt’ escape without first getting a good-bye hug. That’s how big her love was. I’m so going to miss our long conversations about life and everything in between….

My earliest memory of my Grandma Judy has to be her ice cream cones. I don’t think she ever turned me down on one 😉 I remember spending time with her going to rummages, visiting her sister Juanita when I wanted to have a perm done on my hair and I remember our sleepovers where I would sleep in the bed, right inbetween my Grandma & Grandpa.

My Grandma was a wonderful woman, inside & out. Always keeping me on my toes with her witty sense of humor. Yes, I can recall many good laughs with her, lol. She always hugged me, told me loved me & always made me feel beautiful.

I loved how she’s always loved my husband just like one of her own Grandchildren. And when my time came to make her a Great Grandma, she couldn’t have looked more happier. She loved my whole fmaily so much & we all knew it.

Grandma I will miss you dearly, I will think of you always and I won’t ever forget how your love feels. Til we meet again Granny!!!!

Judy was one of the nicest people I have had the priviledge of knowing. SHe was always warm and loving. She treated me, my wife and kids like we were family. She became the mom my wife and I never had and the Grandma that my kids never had.

We miss her so much. Her smile, laugh among so many other things. I remember her always bringing us a bag of chips, French onion dip and two containers of minute maid juice to every Lifegroup we had. Even when she couldn’t come, she would have Jesse drop it off. Next month… The snacks are on us Judy! We miss you and love you. See at the gates of Heaven!
