Judith was my little sister. I was only 2 1/2 when she died and barely remember her.I only had one physical contact with her. I do remember asking to help put her yellow booties on. My mother was concerned that I would hurt her but my Aunt Thelma said "Leave her alone Bonnie she's being careful". Judy was a SIDS baby. Mother thought she died as the result of a difficult high forceps delivery. I think she died from forgetting to breath. Dad found her dead in her crib one morning. After that Mother found it hard to be outwardly affectionate to me and I understand that she feared the loss of her only remaining child.
Mom's family were not "touchy feely" kind of people. They did not give hugs or verbal praise;although they were a tightly bonded group of individuals who stood together through thick and thin. They never said "I love you", gave praise or hugged. I was raised as an only child and felt like one till I found Find A Grave and so many nice people have put tokens on Judy's site. She was buried in a grave donated by some friends of the family. Mama said we could not afford to buy a plot. The coffin was lined with pink silk. It has taken me years to accept her presence into my life. The only picture of her was one of her in her coffin. My heartfelt thanks to all the caring and very special people who acknowledge her brief existence.
THANK YOU TO JANE EUBANKS FOR SPONSORING JUDY. I KNOW MOTHER WOULD HAVE BEEN SO PLEASED THAT A KIND AND GENEROUS PERSON SPONSORED HER BELOVED DAUGHTER.
