A Note from Marvin
Judy was a very proud woman, devoted mother to her children, fine wife, decorated the house, maintained a clean house and asked for very little even while she was very very sick. She was very good to all our family. She was just so many fine things. We were all friends from the start, we were always honest with one another and I love her very much. I know there is a spot in heaven for her. Her last wishes to me were to take care of her children. She loved talking to her children on the phone and really loved them. She wanted me to take care of her dog Chyna. She loved her whole family. Thank you to the family that showed so much support over the years.
