"Oh my! I remember the first time I saw Judy King. I was standing next  to Melissa who was to be my wife later on at the new ( then) hickory hollow mall in Nashivile)  I was watching from the second floor from Spencer gifts  and off to the lower level left was a water bed display. ( sorry this was late 70's early 80. But yet yet there was this young lovely lady bouncing on these water beds about 40 feet below me and melissa. I said look at that chick bouncing on those beds and Melissa said....Oh that is my mom Judy. I was 23 and melissa was 18. I meet Judy at the chicken filet long before it became big for a chicken sandwich and lemonade and we bonded...in a sense.

She was nervous of me being a yankee through all those days. But I liked here her. Always did!So much to tell here, actually a book....but that book is private.

To Melissa ( alias Neah) My secrets are forever that.My appreciation and love for Judy will never die. I understood the times that changed the history of time, after all, I was part of that and lived it with you  Melissa.

God bless Judy King and may she rest in peace with Christ  forever.But foremost my absolute respect to your mothers passing.

Best Melissa we will always be coneccted

"Mom told me  story, which I did remember parts of  story.

I actually ran away, when I was 3, but just to next door 's house trash can...

stayed Maybe 15 min and apparently Mom panicked so bad she was in tears!!

But when she found me I told her I wasnt really running away, just hiding..She was

so upset but crying so much because I was alright."

We all use to visit at her house, where at any given time, there were always friends of the kids' playing music, and having fun. !! For the first time in 30 yrs, we met in April..such a great time and again in May on vacation!  I am so thankful we had the chance to spend time together again <3"

"Melissa I love you and your mom. Your mom always treated me like her son. I was always welcome in your home. I  loved her smile. Most of all I love the strength she had to pull her self together after Jack died and raise you and Chris the best she could."

"I met Judy at Church of the Cross and began to know her better as we spent time talking with one another. I felt like I was spending time with my own mother because Judy had many of my mom's characteristics like kindness, love, understanding, wisdom, and humor. I'm so glad God allowed the paths of our lives to intersect in His good plan."

"I remember when I first met Miss Judy, she always walked in with a Taco Bell cup in hand. She would crack jokes with her southern quirky personality and ask me what lipstick I was wearing. She always lit up the room when she came in and always was pleasant soul to be around. She will be very missed by me and all the girls at first choice haircutters."

"I met Chris the first day of school in the 7th grade at Apollo Jr. High school. His family always made you feel at home, and Ms Judy was that cool mom we all dreamed of having. Through all the hardships and tribulations she and her family endured she was the rock that anchored the family. We as friends always were made to feel like we were part of her family.. Ms Judy touched many hearts.!"

"As a teenager and coming from a troubled family I used to spend a lot of time at Judy, Chris and Melissa's house. Judy took me in and treated me like one of her own when I was a kid. I spent more time at her house than at my own during my teenage years. I will always think of her as mom. RIP sweet Lady.  Luv u Melissa Renee' Kennicot (never knew what the hell that meant) King."

"Melissa and I were friends in the late 70's. I remember the home was warm and inviting. Full most of the time. For some reason I remember the early mornings sitting at the table. Quiet time. I thought she was beautiful inside and out. She and Melissa seemed more like sisters than mother and daughter. A deep bond that could be felt. I remember thinking she was so very cool. Love u, Mel"

"I remember the first Sunday that Heather and I arrived at Church of the Cross.  After we sang for worship, we sat down and a hand reached gently from the pew behind and grabbed mine..I heard a voice say.."That was beautiful." I turned and saw Judy smile at me with her eyes that lit up.  Well, for me..that was Judy..BEAUTIFUL! Her smile, her hugs, her words..her life..we will miss you! J&H"

"My sweet Mom, who was also my best friend, will be forever missed not only by me and my husband, but many friends. She always had a smile on her face and would help anyone,all the while having major back pain. She was so funny and was always "cutting up", as she would say. She was a good Christian lady that read her bible and prayed everyday. Love you Mom & life wont be same without you!"
