Mom, my mind is constantly thinking of you. Every time I head your way, I think, “I need to just run over and visit mom”. You are no longer there, but you are forever in my heart. I will truly miss your phone calls, I’ll miss brining things to you, I’ll miss taking you to your appointments. I will miss taking care you you. Thank you for loving me and my children and your great grandchildren.
Thank you for your kindness.
You and Dad left a great legacy.
I will love your forever and I miss you so very much.
Love your second and middle child,

Julie has a special place in my heart. Knowing her from age 15, spending time on Allen St. She was a beautiful person. I am so happy I was able to spend time with her a couple of years ago over Christmas. We went to lunch, talked and talked. A great memory to cherish. Miss you Ma

Julia and I shared a room at Lanfair in , I think, 2012. We watched 24 hours of Christmas movies and kept each other company! I believe she had a shoulder replacement. She got help for me when I passed out and need help. We were quite the duo. My Ricky passed away in 2017 so they will find each other!
So sorry for your loss! I have very fond memories!!!

Julia, was a sweet, kind and thoughtful lady. I first met her when she and Dick moved to Lancaster, Ohio and lived down the street from me on Allen St. She was a valuable volunteer at the Georgian as well as a one time secretary for the Fairfield Heritage Assoc. She and her husband, Dick were valuable assets to Lancaster, even though they professed to be loyal to that state "up north".
