"I am deeply saddened by Judy's passing. I enjoyed being her "nurse" for many years. She always had a smile and kind words for all. She never complained. I will truly miss her Nurse Becky"

"The Coulter and the Jackson families grew up in the same neighborhood on East Hill. We were taught a high work ethic because our folks worked hard and showed respect for everyone. We all played together, got along and had fun with other kids in the neighborhood. This was a time when you could be out after dark and not worry about something happening to you. Parents could spank you, tell your parents and they would spank you too, after thanking the other parents for correcting you. Judy was always a sweet person and seldom without a beautiful smile. Her brothers and my brothers, Tal & Rick Jackson were good friends who enjoyed sports. Later in our lives, I ran into Judy at the Nichols Auction and would look forward to seeing her there. The mention of her name has always made me smile. My deepest condolences to all of her family. "
