Judy was a huge sports fan who loved the Dallas Cowboys and OU Football. She enjoyed filling an ice chest full of ice and Cokes and giving them to strangers around the Oklahoma City area with her sister. They would tell them "Have a Coke and a smile". She would teach English to the Hispanice community who wished to learn English in the local public library. She loved animals and to this, I would assume, she would say to all of us "Have a Coke and Smile".
