Not sure what to say?

Judy and I were journalism classmates at A&M. We worked together on the College of Liberal Arts magazine, The Review. She was a caring and gererous lady. When my wife to be arrived by bus from TWU for the Boot Dance, sans luggage, Judy loaned her a formal. What a sweet and talented lady.

Just by accident searching the internet I learned of Judy's passing as well as the passing of Martha's passing in 1996. The Franklin family is in my prayers at this time.

Judy's Mother was my Mother's Aunt. I have fond memories of our visits to the Franklin's home. Our nickname for her was "Judy Bug" because a comment was made years ago by my Dad that Judy looked "Cute as a bug" in her new glasses! We would put on plays in the garage and Judy would orchestrate it all, no easy task as our family is large too. We lost touch until a few years ago and it was good seeing her again, she was the sweet, friendly and loving person I remembered. God...

I will miss Judy. She was an inspiration and a role model to me. She taught me by example: patience, kindness, generosity and how to be a leader. I loved her sense of humor and very glad to have had her in my life. God bless her friends and family. She was truly an angel. Marlies Sheppard '94

Ordinarily after a big event, I could count on Judy to stroll into my office to evaluate it as only two journalists can.

So I waited to add my thoughts here until after her service today. I can hear her glowing commentary about the beautiful singing by the young ladies, especially her niece. I can see her patting her brothers on the back for their loving remarks. I can imagine her delving into the scripture and sermon with the minister then heading over to the organist to tell her...

Judy was a member of our monthly Applebee's dinner group. She will forever be in our hearts, as we celebrate her "homegoing" with her family and friends.

What a beautiful celebration service today. I pray that God will comfort and strengthen you all in the days ahead, and that your fond memories of Judy will sustain you.

Judy, I miss you! I miss your sharp wit, your tremendous sense of humor, and perhaps most of all, your thoughtful wisdom and encouragement.

Judy was so alive and vibrant that this is an incredible blow. My heart goes out to her griefving family. Her loss leaves a hole in the universe. Kay Kendall, former co-worker, Houston TX
