Judy - A smile that lit up the world and made you wonder what she was up to. So sorry for loss to the Perkins family and friends. So many memories we had at their home. The most vivid memory is that little ankle biter chihuahua that chased us the minute we headed back down the stairs. Also listening to “Bad Company” with Dale and Judy. Rest In Peace Judy.
An old family friend.
