Another beautiful cousin gone but never forgotten. Thoughts and prayers for all of her extended family. Wonderful memories of the brief times we were able to spend together in Belle Rose. Julie was a gift to us all and as many have said already.... what we remember most is her sweet nature and that fantastic smile.

Words cannot express my sorry for your loss. Your Mother was a beautiful person inside and out. Her dimples and smile lit up the room when she came in. I regret that I did not have the chance to see her the last time that I was in Donaldsonville. I will keep you and your Mother in my prayers and have asked my Cursillo Sisters to do the same. My love to all of you. Aunt Anna Marie

Sympathy to Julie's family. Haven't seen her since 84 probably, but as a classmate she was a loving, caring person which was always a bright spot in school.
