Judy, your mother was truly a special lady. She was always smiling with a sparkle in her eyes and genuinely cared for others. She holds a place in my heart, and I'm so thankful we will all be together in our forever home because of Jesus. Love you.

Judy, what a wonderful lady Maurine was. The quiet dignity, but quick humor, reminded me of my mother from time to time. Forever young will be my memory of her. Praying over you and all the family, especially during this time.
