For my wife and I, we looked at Julie and Art as the model for a great marriage. Anyone that spent time with them soon understood the wonderful supportive bond between the two of them.

We loved hearing their stories of travels around the world. Julie seemed to be almost always smiling. Her friendly warmth impacted everyone she met.

I just wanted to pay my respects. Her dad was my grandfather & thought I should send love out to her close family. I'm sure she'll be missed by so many. Only wish I could've met her. 💛
