    Judy was a wonderful soul, a great cook and quick with a smile. Dealing with the loss of a loved one is one of the most trying situations. It is difficult to finds words of comfort that are adequate. I am so sorry about the loss of Judy. We built so many incredible memories that can never be replaced nor repeated. Some of my greatest memories are from the time I was about 4 years old with the McRae family. Our families lived a memorable life of air planes, vacations, camping, water ski, fishing, ocean life, love of our dogs and lake life. She loved her boys and my prayers to L.T., Randy, Wayne and Terry and the extended family. I thought of her mother “Nanny” as my grandmother, Judy was like a mother to me whenever I needed her. People like her come along once in a lifetime. Everyone who knew her must realize this. There is a huge void left behind by her passing, we will all have to try to help fill it. We all have a little bit of Judy within us and it would serve us well to show it to everyone. She has her wings now, see you soon Judy Mae. Love, Cheryle Rogers-Hunt, Beechgrove, TN
