Judy's son, Greg, who had his last name legally changed to Reeves some years ago, sadly passed away in recent years. I knew him and he was a wonderful young man. He wrote a slim book years ago about his mother's rodeo career and there were interesting photos and narrative. Nothing revelatory about Jim was contained in the book, although it was Greg who first contacted me and volunteered the initial details about his mother's involvement with Reeves. I tried for years to get Greg to convince his mother to talk with me, to no avail. Perhaps the timing was just not right for Judy to feel like she wanted to talk about Jim. |
After Greg passed away, however, I wrote Judy a letter and she called me and we have been close friends ever since. She lives on a big ranch that she tells me Jim would have loved. In fact, we spoke a few days ago on the phone. She is a very dear lady.
Bea's son, Don, is currently writing a book about his own career (he managed various country music artists and had a fascinating life of his own) and his mother will be mentioned in the book in considerable detail. No publication date has been announced for it as yet. I have heard many of Don's stories and they are engrossing. It will surely be a book country music fans will want to buy. He has known a who's who in the entertainment industry and has many personal details to share about them. Including telling the shocking truth about some sacred cows.
