My heart is absolutely broken.
This is my last, and most precious sister.
Judy was diagnosed with small cell lung cancer on February 19, 2008. She had 20 radiation treatments and 3 Chemo treatments and this was simply more than her already fragile body could handle.
Our Mom... Audrey Elna
Our oldest sister... Betty Gene
I will add a more deserving tribute for her soon...

My Dearest Judy,
I love you so very, very, much my sweetest sister, and I'll miss you more with every passing second. The only comfort I have right now is in knowing you are in the presence of our Lord, along with Mom and Betty, where you have really wanted to be since Momma left this earth.
Thank you with all my heart for being by my side no matter what, for loving me regardless of all my faults, for laughing at all the things that made me laugh, and for having a broken heart at all the things that broke mine. You are the best sister anyone could want and I truly couldn't have asked God for more.
Please kiss our loved ones for me and tell them to keep their eye toward the gate, because someday I'll get to cross whatever bridge it takes and I know when I do, I'll see you there.
Until then, rest peacefully my sweetest Angel....
A poem I wrote for my precious sister in honor of the Day God called her home.
Today is your Angel Day, that's what we say.
It means here on earth you were taken away.
Away to a place filled with God's perfect love.
Away to place that lies somewhere above.
It's above all we see, and above what we hear.
It's a place where we hope to find all who are dear.
There are Grandmas and Grandpas, Uncles and Aunts.
There's a multitude of people who have entered the dance.
They're dancing on streets that are made of pure gold,
And each has a story that often was told.
A story of how they met Jesus on earth.
And the road that they traveled to get there from birth.
A road filled with mountains that had to be climbed.
A road filled with trials until peace they could find.
Peace that abounds in the Heavens above.
And peace that is found in the midst of Gods love.
Peace that will sweep over all of our cares,
And wipe every tear from our eyes over there.
So rest my sweet sister in God's perfect love.
And dance on His streets with our family above.
Then someday I hope when my journey is through,
I'll dance on those streets in God's Kingdom with you...
