Jack and family---so very sorry to hear of Judy's passing. I have many fond memories of visiting with Judy's family as well as all of the Travous family in the summer of 1953, I believe it was. I'm about six months older than Judy. She visited with my family in Arkansas, then with all the aunts and uncles in Brinkley and Hunter, AR after which we went back to Belleville and visited (stayed with) all the relatives around Belleville, Mascoutah and Lebanon. I have so many fond memories of all of you. Judy was a teaser and a giggler and loved to have fun. We enjoyed many visits through the years. Remember the good times---there were many!

Jack, Dale, Wade and Teresa sorry we cannot be there with you but our thoughts are with you in this time of sorrow. I lost a wonderful older sister and friend when i was growing up. I will always cherish my memories of her when i was young such as playing cards and board games and watching movies at night with Judy while Jack worked the late shift. So many good memories. Judy is at peace now. Celebrate her life as I will.

Dear Jack and family, I am sharing with you in your grief and sadness over the loss of Judy. I loved her the very day I first met her when her brother Stephen introduced me to the family. May you be comforted by God’s love, peace, and grace.
