I am so sorry I was unable to pay my respects to Judy and the family today. I just learned a few minutes ago that she passed. She was one of the kindest sweetest women I've ever had the privilege of getting to know. The world will be a much darker place without her presence in it. She's in the loving arms of God now! My condolences to Lee and the family on their terrible loss.

So sorry for your loss. Glad I popped my head in and said hello last time I was in town. She was as strong and dismissive of anything of her "not being well" as ever. "Strong matriarch" made me smile...I can here her saying "ROY" or "FRED"...I'm her strong voice from the kitchen command center. . . What a great run! God bless you all.

Reid Crosby and family.
