I just wanted to start by saying Pat,Zakia and Tynisa I'm so sorry for your loss, we all loved him very much. I'm so happy that i got to know this man during my life time. I have known Julian forever, i guess you can say he knew Erich and I first. I will always remember the times we spent in your house in Hempstead, if i close my eyes I can remember the drive from Lakeview. I always remember Julian's love of music, a nice stereo and a clean car. I knew him to be a great grandpa, father and husband. I know he had many successes in his career and in life, but I believe he was most proud of his job as father, grandpa and husband. We love you and we will miss you.
