Judy went to heaven. I'm sure Dad was waiting on her at heaven’s gate. While it is a sad time in our lives, we are all thankful that she is finally free of the pain she suffered with these last several years.
She was a loyal servant to our Lord Jesus Christ her whole life. She was a true prayer warrior.
From decorating for various functions to performing custodial work, she devoted her life to her family and to the church. She had a servant’s heart.
We all Love you and miss you.
