Happy birthday, Judy Crider

Judy would have been 74 today.  I still think about her constantly, and one of the things I remember best is our dates at the Fort Parker State Park lake.  There was a clubhouse with an outside dance floor, which you can see in the picture on the right, and we spent many nights there all year 'round.  I wasn't much of a dancer, but I could dance with her to the slow numbers.  We both agreed that the song that reminded us the most of those days was "Twilight Time" by the Platters.  I hope that someday Judy and I will meet again on that dance floor where we do another slow dance and I'll fall in love again, as I did then, when we're together at last at twilight time.

This is a nice tribute to Judy. You are a very fortunate man; to have found your true love, and to have had a lasting marriage with her, is something that many people seek and many never find.

Happy birthday, Judy, and I know you're saving the next dance for Bill.
