My sincerest condolences to the entire family. Julie was so kind to me and my brother when we were kids, she always had a big smile on her face and was one of the hardest workers I ever met. Julie and my Mom worked closely together back in the day and have only fond memories. Julie may you rest in peace. Cliff Shaddock
