One thought on “Judith M. Kerr, life resident of Fulton”

  1. Sue, you probably don’t remember me, we went to Fulton High School together, class of 1963.
    I just wanted to let you know I have you and your family in my prayers.
    I remember Judy as being my sister’s, Carolyn’s best friend.
    Carolyn passed away May 11, of last year. She took half my heart with her.
    I can remember one of our last phone conversations was about Judy. Carolyn always wondered if she was still around Fulton as she hadn’t seen her in many years, sis was ill and didn’t get around much.
    As old friends do, Carolyn carried many fond memories spent with Judy.
    I haven’t lived in the Fulton area in years so I never could answer her question. Anyway, today I am sure that Judy and sis have found each other and the question is answered. They are both together with all who loved them, especially Almighty God.
    Judy was very strong person and very courageous. I can remember seeing her and her husband, John walking with their son in the carriage many times. Nothing could stop her and I know she had many trials in her life, but what an example of perseverance she gave to others. She was quite a person.
