We have this promise, but at the same time, because of the separation of someone so dear and loved as Judy, we know your heart is breaking because you miss her. We miss her, too. Cherish all the wonderful memories and know we are praying God’s mighty comfort for you all

  • Since Judy began her cancer battle, there is not a day gone by that I have not thought about Judy. She was a true Christian in all aspects. When I think how grateful I am to be a Christian, I thank Judy and Wayne.

    Judy has no more pain and is at peace. I know that is hard for those she left behind but she will always live on in our hearts.

    My prayers and sympathy to the family.

    LOVE ALWAYS,
