Dear Julia,
We met during a cruise around the Mediterrean Sea in 1981. I met your dear husband Cy, as well. I was eighteen years old. Since that time we have always kept in touch.
I would like to thank you for all the greetings cards that you sent me and my family every year. I called you on Christmas and I admired your powerful voice.
You will always stay in my heart.
Greetings from Annamaria and family

Julia will be greatly missed.

40 years ago I used to help Julie and Cy with chores and upkeep of their yard and home as a young teenager.
Julia was always very kind and generous, had a wonderful sense of humor, and she sent me birthday cards every year since.
I'm very sorry for your loss, but know that Julia's many friends will always cherish their memories of her.

To the Mizla Family. We were so sorry to hear about Julia’s passing. She was a very special person and a loving friend who sent us an anniversary card every year for 57 years. Julia and Cy were so kind to George when he worked at Pratt and helped Cy in the parking lot. She will always be remembered. George and Mary Mahoney.
