Tammy and family. Sorry to hear about the loss of your mom and dad. Your mom always greeted me with a smile and would always say hi whenever we would meet up somewhere. I meet your dad when Tim and April’s Gavin started school with Jacob and he would pick Gavin up sometimes. He too would have a smile as he walked by. They were two good people! You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.
Your presence will be missed in the village of Plymouth. It was always a pleasure to speak to you as you would pass the studio. You were a pleasant person to be around, and I have known you for many years. May God comfort your family during this time of loss.
Sheila and David Tackett,
sorry about your mom she was a great woman,she was kind,giving,was good listener,she will always be in our hearts!
I have many fond memories of growing up in Wheelwright with Judy and her sisters. It is difficult to understand what you are experiencing after the loss of both Judy and Gene in such a short time, I am sure that God, in His infinite mercy will give you the strength you need. Please accept my deepest sympathies. Pat (Bailey) Baldwin
Judy’s Family – I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your mom. Judy was such a wonderful person! She was my dancing buddy when Jeff and I would go uptown… I will always remember that great smile…Take Care and God Bless…
Keith,Kathy,Tim,Tammy and Barry, I am so sorry for the loss of your Mother Judy and your Dad Gene. I only wish that Judy and I had stayed close to each other through the years and that I could have gotten to know each of her children. I knew Keith when he was a baby and I changed his diaper and played with him. Kathy, I meet you twiced once in Michigan, you were only a baby and then I meet you at mine and Judy’s class reunion. Tim and Barry you both are very sweet and all of you are beautiful Children. You all were justing amazing and treated me like family and my regret is not getting to know all the family and staying close. Judy and I had some wonderful times growing up together and staying alnight with each other. We would also pester Freda and Bibby but we all loved each other. Edna Mae and Willie were my second Mother and Daddy and of course Judy,Freda,Bibby and I were like sisters. My heart goes out to each and every one in her family. She did a great job in raising all of her children and I am very proud of Judy for having just wonderful family. I will pray for all and I will miss Judy. Stay in touch. Sending my prayers and love for each of you. Love Betty Ann Vilak Miller
Tim & April,
You are in our thoughts and our prayers. May God bless and comfort you and your whole family.

Mamaw – this was all just too much to take. You have been there for me my whole life – you babysat me since I was a baby (and Adam and Felicia) – I have soooo many memories with you and the funny things you used to say and do. I knew I could always count on you to be out on the dance floor with me when no one else would dance at weddings or parties. You have always supported me in everything I did and were always there to cheer me on and I never got a chance to thank you for that – it meant so much to me that you cared and loved us so much! No birthday ever went by without you making a special trip to give us a card and gift and you were always the first one to show up for the party (B-day, graduation). You were the most generous person I know and you gave us everything you had even when you didn’t have anything you found a way. Christmas Eve at your house was the day I looked forward to the whole year! I really enjoyed the short time that we were able to text each other – it made me feel closer to you since I live so far away. You were an amazing grandmother and I just wish I was able to express that to you – I hope you knew how much I loved you and still do. I had such a special talk with you this Christmas and you were so excited about your bible studies and you had so much joy and I will keep that memory of you with me and I will cherish all the memories of you always. I love you Mamaw and I can’t wait to see you again. Love, your grandaughter.
To the Family,
We are very sad about the passing of your Mom, Sister and Grandmother. As I read the on-line comments it is very easy for me to see that Judy was indeed a very special person. She loved her family and friends very much and in return she received from each of you much love and respect. I wish I had been able to visit with your Mom and Dad and to spend time with them. You were blessed to have them as part of your life. May God bless and keep each of you at this time.

To all of my GREAT Nieces and Nephews,and Great Greats, I love all of you, you are great combination of all the love and passion for life,
God and family that Judy and Gene lived and gave
to all of you. I think of the fun and times Judy and I had as kids and teenagers, it is fun to remember them, it was more like sisters, instead of Aunt and Niece. I wish with all my heart I could be with all of you. Please give a great big
group hug from me and Uncle Pat.Remember Osbornes love to hug. I can’t help but think about Heaven must be really rock’n right now with
all that dancing and singing (I hope Judy has a gold Tamboreen to play.
