Joy you’ve always given me.
Unselfishly shared your family.
Dutifully fulfilled His call for thee.
Yielded all He asked you to set free.
Judy, you’re the best friend I have here on earth.
You’ve known me since before my rebirth.
God works in mysterious ways, His wonders to perform,
When He sent me to you, our special friendship bond to form.
The way has been so hard and long,
But you’ve always been there with just the right song.
Without a doubt I can honestly say,
Many times, without you, I might not be here today.
You’ve been there and comforted me, many times thru the years.
When all I had to offer was heartache, despair and tears.
The only words that can express my attitude,
Are deepest, warmest, heartfelt gratitude.
If everyone had a friend like you, the entire world around,
I know the word of God, love and forgiveness would abound.
