We'll always remember Mr. Chuck and Miss Judy coming over on the golf cart. Then we would all sit on the back porch and eat ice cream. When it was getting dark Miss Judy would say they should head for home because they didn't have lights on their chariot. She will always hold a special place in our hearts.

Charles "Chuck", Shelley, & Chuck ~ I am so sorry for your loss. Judy and my mom, Lois Sellers Rote were cousins and I always felt close to Judy, she was such a loving person. After my mom passed away, Judy and her family always made me feel loved and welcomed. I will definitely miss the times when I'd run into Judy and Shelley out shopping. This seemed to happen more often than not and totally by coincidence! We definitely loved to shop! Also, it is quite ironic that Judy passed away 30 years to the date of when my mom, her cousin, passed away, April 9th! I can just imagine the two of them, sitting in heaven reminiscing​ and sharing memories! Judy will definitely be missed, but I hope and pray that God and all of your wonderful memories will help to ease your pain and loss that you are feeling. And, please know that my thoughts, prayers and love are with you and your families during this difficult time. Blessings to all of you and to your families. Love and God Bless, Julie "Rote" Borg
