  1. candle 6Dear Mom, thank you for always being there, even when I was a challenging kid/teenager. I’ll cherish a lifetime of beautiful memories forever. Now you’re reunited with loved ones welcoming you into Heaven. I admire you for not only being an amazing mother, but also for being a grandmother, daughter, wife, aunt, and savvy business owner. Love, your only son

  2. candle 7Judy, not only where you an awesome mom, sister, daughter, grandma and friend but you were also an awesome cousin too. My only regret is not coming out to California to visit you. But flying is just not my thing. I love you so much and what a glorious reunion I know you had when you got to heaven. I hope you remembered to go to the West Gate!!!! Save a place at the table for me!!!
    Love you so very much!!!

    • candle 5Dear Patty, That’s so sweet, for awesome cousins … it takes one to know one! We would have loved for you to visit while my mom was still alive, and we’d still love for you to come visit! Maybe someday we’ll visit Charlotte, too. Love, Dave

  3. candle 7Dear David and family, we will miss Judi! She was a special person. Always willing to listen to or help anyone. She loved the Lord and her family very much. I was very fortunate to have her as an employee. Our customers loved her and so did we! So glad we got to see her last summer. God bless

  4. I’m so sorry David. My mom used to brag on Judy being such a wonderful cook. I still have several of her recipes and my favorite is listed as “Judy’s Brownies”. All these years that’s what we’ve called them!

    My deepest sympathy. Love you!

    • candle 7Dear Susan, that’s so sweet thank you for telling me. Emily is consolidating all of the recipes that my mom had ticked away here and there. Many of her recipes have the person’s name she got them from. She probably has some Aiht Beth recipes! If you get a chance please take a pic of “Judy’s Brownies” so she’ll have that one, too. Love, Dave

  5. candle 4Judy was always such a sweet, gracious lady. She was also a friendly, kind neighbor. Always enjoyed the chance to say Hello to her.
    Judy, you are truly missed.

    • candle 3Dear John,
      You’re one of the reasons my mother really enjoyed living at peaceful and quiet Tiki Aloha.
      Thank you!
