We met Uncle Judge only once after his 'Prodigal Son' homecoming, and shortly before his death. What a sweetheart! Smiles and laughter came easy for him. At the time of his death, he was living in Somerset, Pulaski County, Ky. He was returned to his home burial grounds in Barren County. He had come full circle.
