Me and my family have always been Allison fans and felt like we were part of the Alabama gang family. I had the privilege to meet Bobby and Judy in Aiken South Carolina at the mall on the way to the southern 500 we had a good conversation with bother them, Judy went out to the car with me to get me a T-shirt while Bobby signed all my race cars & shirts. That may my day just sitting there talking both of them ! Racing is not the same without the Allisons there .Our hearts are saddened with you all this difficult time may God bless you all.

My association with the Allison family didn't come through "racing" but through Saint Aloysius where Bonnie and I met and where our children went to school. I am truly blessed to have Bonnie as a dear and loving friend and was honored to spend some special times with Judy and Bobby Allison. My heart is heavy for all the Allison family but I know that their belief in our God will help with the healing.

Bobby,my heart grieves for your loss. Judy was always so kind to me when I worked for another racing team a few years back. She would sit and talk and offer advice when other wives wouldn't even speak. She was pure class all the way. Davey will be glad to see her. I will miss her.

I will miss her presence, her twinkling smile , infectious laugh, exciting coversation and her devotion to help, whoever or wherever needed.
