    Julie & family, I am sorry for your Mom’s passing. She was always good to me when we were kids. May you all be comforted during this time.

    My Aunt Judy was a great cook. We enjoyed her hospitality when we went to visit their home in the country near Lonoke. She was my father’s younger sister and only surviving sibling after their brother Mark died. I would travel down to Lonoke to visit the family for overnight stays. I enjoyed visiting with Julie and Melba.

  4. It was so sad to hear of Mrs. Judy’s passing. She was a sweet, sweet lady and will certainly be missed. Thoughts and prayers for the family.. Debbie Atkins

    Granny where do I even begin with all the fun memories we made together. To you taking me and Brit to dance all those times we were living in lonoke to riding on tractor with pawpaw and us using his radio to talk to you back at home, to the nights we spent out with y’all during the weekends at the country. You always have us sit on floor next to your recliner and brush and play with our hair for hours. You take us to aunt melbas to go swim all the time and come by the house to pick us up to take back to the country. We loved spending time with you and would always jam out to your favorite song ever by kc and sunshine band shake your booty. We will always be granny’s little buddies aka the twins. I’m so glad you are at peace now and will continue to watch over us. We love you so much and will miss you everyday. Until we meet again! Love always, Little Whit
