You truly were the best mother in law I could have asked for. As the weeks have passed since you you have been gone, I miss you more and more. I catch myself wanting to call you and tell you about my day. You were always in my corner and did more for me and was there for me more than anyone ever. I'm so glad that I had the privilege of your love for 31 years. I hope you realized how much you were loved and how many people life's you touched. Your grandsons will always remember how much you loved them as I hope you knew how much we all loved you. Although I miss you more than I can say, I know you are in a better place. Until we meet again, know this, you will forever be in my heart and forever loved.

No son could have asked for a better mother. Just know that you are very loved and will always be. I will always miss you momma. There are so many things that I wanted to do for you. I installed your icemaker. No more ice trays. Crushed ice and cold water right out of the front. I was proud of it and wanted you to enjoy it after you got home. I also very much wanted to take you for a car ride . I already miss you so much and so does everyone else. Tell grandpa and grandma and all my uncles and aunts that I said hello and that they are missed too. It won't be long and we'll all be together anyway even your grandkids. Just like we used to all gather at grandma's by the dozens. I love you momma and always will.

I love you Aunt Frances and you will always be inside my heart. Thank you for always being there for me all my life and letting me stay with you during my summers when I had to move up north. Yes, you will always be a bonus momma to me. I know you are running the streets of gold upstairs in heaven with your loved ones and singing praises to God. I will miss you so so much. Love, Judy ❤
