May our Heavenly Father, Jéhovah, wrap His spiritual arms
around, you Kelby and Shanté during today and days ahead!

May His spirit strengthen you and provide you with ALL you need and recall, Bro Espinoso's encouraging words that while Julia is not with us due to falling asleep in death, resting as it were now in best place-"Jehovahs memory," where, when He calls, Julia, by way of the promised Rèsurrection, Julia will waken and rise up!"
( John 5:28,29)

Julia's life legacy is filled with the love and joys she shared and you and those in congregation and those who met her will always treasure, till Julia awaken,!

Again Jéhovah continue to be with you both as well as the family!

Kelby, I met you when you visited Seaview French in Norfolk, VA., with Shante'and her mom Sis Mabel when you both visited, Virginia!

I was sadden when Bro Jules and Sis Kimberly Itong let me know today of Julia falling to sleep in death, and the Memorial was today!

I will keep you, and Shante' in supplications to Jéhovah!

"Soon now Paradise, and then, the promised, Ressurrections and welcoming Julia back,"

Warm Agape!

Aunt Julia was such a caring and selfless spirit! She loved her family and would always text me to make sure we were okay. I could never repay her for the love and care she provided to her sister during her time of need. May her light shine so bright onto her family and those who loved her unconditionally.

Julia brought a smile to everyone with the ever present smile she radiated.
It was always a pleasure to be with her at the meeting and in the ministry.
Her hope will be realized soon when she answers the personal call by Jehovah’s precious son.
We will see our sister Julia sooner than we think.

Julia was always one who radiated positive spiritual energy! Add to that an infectious smile that never ceased. While attending Kingwood English she was indeed an asset and one whose presence and attitude encouraged everyone she came in contact with. She will be greatly missed and not forgotten.

Aunt Julia was the sweetest,caring,selfless person I knew. She loved her family and friends dearly. I will always cherish our weekly phone calls and our visits. She was literally like a second mother to me. She is definitely missed and loved.
