    Judy and two of her daughters and several of her grandchildren are my next door neighbors. Judy has always been a sweet but strong woman, keeping her family together and teaching them values like helping others, taking good care of their kids, being respectful to older ones. I have always felt safe having the Ford family next door. Judy will always be remembered in my heart as a soft spoken, humble and caring person. I always felt her friendship even if I didnt see her for a while. Strong, a peacemaker and always ready with a smile, even when she didnt feel like it. I will miss her and the family is in my prayers and thoughts. You girls will be all right. You have learned from your mom. My deepest sympathy for the difficult days ahead, this new chapter in your life. She loved you, each one. Remember that. Love, Ginny Crim

    You laid there in that your
    bed with your girls by your side, you tried so hard to hold on for your family. But God was calling you home. He needed another angel to help poor out the rain and oh did it rain that night, we all knew you made it home and through the pearly gate. Tears have fallen, hearts where shattered,
    but it was time for you to fly home.
    The ones you loved the most came to say their last goodbyes, to tell you they loved you, and that you will be forever missed. As your heart took it’s last beat, and your eyes slowly closed, you lay there so beautiful and at peace. No more pain, God took that away. You are now with the ones you have missed for oh so long because God took another angel home.
    I love and miss your dearly my Aunt Judy!

    My favorite neighbors! I am so sorry for your loss. She was always unbelievably sweet to me and talked me though she knew me forever. She made me feel very comfortable. A very sweet woman. You girls lean on faith and realize she is in heaven and looking down and out for you. Again,I am truly sorry for your loss. – Brandon and Smokey
