    Julia Mae Hewitt (Miss Judy to our family) came into our lives when our daughter Parker was 16 weeks old. She loved and cared for all 3 of us like we were her own. She quickly and forever became a part of our family. She took Parker on bus rides all over town! We were fortunate enough to speak with her for the last time right before her birthday this past Christmas. She laughed with us and told us how much she loved us. We love you and are forever grateful to you Miss Judy. You will be missed but live on in our hearts.
