As you all know in Texas, a wonderful sister has gone to sleep in death. This is so hard to know that my best and dearest friend will no longer be there for chats about children, grandchildren and friends we have in common, which are many. She was the most loving, caring and giving person that I have ever known and she taught me so much about giving. She loved her children and grandchildren with a passion that most of us don’t, not that we don’t love our grandchildren, but they were her life. She and Rolland have done so much to enrich our lives in every way and I hope that we also were able to do the same for them. She was always there for me, helped me when I had surgery and couldn’t do anything, helped me to make a little money when I needed to, loved me when I needed it. I love her like my very own sister and her loss is a very deep pain in my heart is breaking but Jehovah will see all of us though. Thank all of you there for taking care of the Hendricks family and showing them love and support that they need. Heidi, Curtis, Todd, Cliff, Seth, Titus and not least of all Rolland. Know that I love you all very much. Your sister, friend Judy and also Dan, all love you very much.
