I was saddened to read the news of Julie’s passing. Even though I had not seen her for many years, I remember what fun she was as a little girl. I baby sat for Julie and “Baby Joe” in 1974 when the Giesting’s opened their dental practice in Brookville. She was so smart and nothing got past her. I know she will be missed by her family and may God comfort them.

Dale and Mary,
We are so sorry to hear of the passing of your beloved daughter. Having lost our son, we know how shocking it is to lose a child. We are not supposed to bury our children; they are supposed to bury us. May God bring you peace and comfort in the difficult days ahead. We are praying for you.
