Friends, family and courthouse colleagues gathered for a brief ceremony Thursday honoring a local Sessions Court judge who died in January.
Debbie Moon, the widow of former General Sessions Court Judge Bob Moon, and the judge's mother, Chris Moon, accepted a photography collection shadowbox and a Tennessee General Assembly resolution honoring the judge.
State Rep. Richard Floyd, R-Chattanooga, presented the resolution and said, "My life will always be made better because God saw fit to make Bob Moon my friend."
Alan Pressley constructed the shadowboxes, one each for Debbie and Chris Moon and a third that will hang in the judicial corridor near Moon's former chambers.
"These were the last pictures of your son, Bob Moon, with his colleagues and friends," Pressley said before presenting the artwork.
The collection showcased photos of Moon with Sessions Judge Clarence Shattuck, Chattanooga City Court Judge Sherry Paty and others at events in the courthouse.
Moon, 60, served as Sessions Court judge from 1996 until his death on Jan. 26.
Debbie Moon said she is overwhelmed by the support of her husband's friends after his death.
"That's how I've gotten through this is my friends and his," she said.
