We love you always, Judy! You were so sweet, so calm, and so soft-spoken. Even though I was only 5 at the time I still remember what a beautiful bride you were, and how handsome your Buddy was. You looked like a tiny doll to me with your tiny waist and stunning gown! I am blessed to be in your life. God bless you on your new journey . RIP
