My dear cousin, Judy, you will be missed. May you rest in peace. Thank you and Ron for the time we had together after my brother, Steve’s, funeral. Although you were not feeling well, you and Ron attended the family gathering. It meant so much to see you both. I will forever hold close to my heart, the phone conversations we shared over the past several months. Your courage and strength remains awe inspiring. Your heartfelt love will never cease. So thankful you are no longer in pain. Rest in peace my dear cousin. Condolences to Ron and all who loved you. Your cousin, Cathy Jones Fontenot Cazes

I met Judy when I worked with her Dollar Tree. She was a kind hard working woman who always smiled and was a pleasure to work with. I was happy for her when she moved right up with the company..then leaving and moving back to Florida. God bless her family.
