I will miss her sweet smile & the sparkle of her eyes!

I met Judy at Lakeside at a time when I was struggling with the death of my dear mother. I turned one morning and her sparkling blue eyes caught my eye & she smiled at me so sweetly. It was at that moment that I felt my mother’s presence. We met after church & I told her how much her gentleness reminded of my own mother. From that Sunday on until life’s circumstances kept us apart, we shared personal feelings and I always left filled with peace. When we couldn’t meet in person, I would call her & we would chat about life. Those conversations always left me smiling as she was always positive in her outlook on life. I will always think of her and smile as I envision her sitting with my mother in heaven and watching over all of us. My condolences to her family; she was a wonderful loving friend.
