A Message from your sister Helen Stadler August 02, 2020: Just woke up thinking, "I can't believe my sister, Julie, is gone." Then I remembered Phil 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. So here are my intimate thoughts of my sisery....I love you forever Julie .

True - The truth is, sis, you are gone, but although you're not here you are with Jesus, The King, The Messiah, The Christ, The Cornerstone, Your and my Savior!

Noble - You have been transformed into a Holy Body, Spiritual and without blemish! Julie, you are among NOBILITY and in THE KINGDOM OF GOD! You are now placed above the angels because you are no longer in your lowly form on earth but in your heavenly body. You walk in THE GLORY OF GOD in THE KINGDOM where the streets are made of pure gold that you can see through it. Where the walls are made of gems that have the apostle's names on them, where the gates are made of one huge pearl, where The King talks to you forever! Nobility is everywhere you look and everywhere you go. Everyone you meet greets you with the greatest love they've ever known. You are radiating with this love that only comes from God.

Just - Julie, as you were greeted by our King, Jesus wrapped you with His glory and love. He knew you suffered here on earth but He also knew you would wake up and experience eternal life with Him. Because HE paid the ultimate price of death on The Cross your sins have been wiped away! You have been redeemed by The Blood of Jesus Christ!

Romans 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. 2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death. 3 For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: He condemned sin in the flesh, 4 that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.

Psalm 85:2 You have forgiven the iniquity of Your people; You have covered all their sin. Selah 3 You have taken away all Your wrath; You have turned from the fierceness of Your anger.

Julie, you are now an heir in God's Kingdom!

Psalm 8:16 The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, 17 and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together.

Pure - Sis, here on earth there is nothing pure except our love. You have loved here on earth and those who felt it knew by your words, your actions, your concern, your smile, your voice. All these we have felt by you. But the love here on earth is not like the Love you are experiencing now. For everytime I feel love from this moment on, you are experiencing the PURIST LOVE never yet known to man until that day we can go home to our Lord Jesus and taste, see, and feel this GREAT LOVE you and mom have every second for all eternity. I love you, sis, and when you say, "I love you more" it is beyond my comprehension. Truly you are in the Pureness of Love!

Lovely - Julie, your laughter, your smile. I treasure the times I got to make you laugh and smile. The grapes, sitting in the backyard dededo, playing with you as a little kid, going around with you as a teenager, drinking coffee as an adult, praying and talking about God over the phone as a woman. These and more are the loving moments we shared, sis. Thank you.

Good Report - Julie, you have been an amazing woman! Brave when you went against all odds. Mom, said the doctors told them you would never walk when you were a baby. Then mom noticed you began to scoot your but and move your legs to get from one place to another. Then one day you stood up and began to walk! Mom had a big smile every time she told me this. Then the surgeries you overcame and the birth of your children which the doctors said you will never be able to have. Then you held 3 jobs at one time to make ends meet as you raised your kids always beside mom. Then you worked at the Attorney General even when you had to carry your oxygen. As your little sister, I never saw you as handicapped. I only saw your courage and how you accomplished the things you set out to get done. There are many wonderful things you have shown us, Julie, even if you weren't aware of it. God saw.

Virtue & Praiseworthy - Julie, you were a woman of power. For a small petite body, you definitely knew how to make it through no matter what came your way. You overcame many obstacles that anyone would walk away from. You were fearless and not afraid to ask until you had answers. We heard and saw everything you did and from it our hearts were touched by you. Thank you, sisery. I love you very very very much and yes...I hear your voice saying, "I love you more" and I can honestly say, "Yes, you do."

This is the day we went to take our family Christmas photo. You were in your wheel chair just looking at us being crazy. I went up to you and took you by surprise. I said I love you and to smile.

I believe we were going out to eat in this photo. Everyone was in the car already and you were still in the house. I walked up to your room and you couldn’t decide if you needed a jacket or not. This is how that conversation went.
Gram: Do you think I’ll get cold?
Me: Grandma you’re always cold so yes, you’ll need one
Gram: Should I wear a long sleeve then too?
Me: No you’ll get hot then!
Gram: Are you sure????
Me: Yes Granny just grab your jacket
Gram: Do I look good?
Me: Awe! YOU LOOK SO PRETTY!
* You got shy*
Gram: No I don’t!
Me: Hold on I NEED to take a picture!!
Gram: NOOOO I look so ugly
Me: No, you look absolutely BEAUTIFUL!
Then I blocked the doorway and told you to pose. You smiled so beautifully and now we used this photo in the funeral. You are a true light. I can’t wait to see that smile again some day 💛

This is when you came outside when we were getting drunk and came to talk to me for a bit. You kept laughing at Gavin and Jamal because they kept head banging to their loud music. Then you made your tea, kissed me goodnight and waddled your way into your room. So cute! Miss you little one

Hey GrannyMaMa, it’s Jele again! I wanted to say my final goodbye to you in this physical world so here it goes.... We just got through your funeral and finally put you to rest. Mom has officially made Sunday “Grandma’s Day” to where we are going to go to church then visit you afterwards. I know you would just jump for joy if you heard that, but I’m pleased to know you’re actually jumping up in heaven because you can now. When I finally walk across the stage again, make sure you and Nana come down to see it okay? Don’t have too much fun and forget about us silly. You are my pride and joy GrannyMaMa. You make me want to be better. I want to try and walk this earth like you did so be prepared to smile a lot! Thank you so much for coming to Vegas to spend time with us. I didn’t know you were as sick as you were, but that’s just how strong you are, it’s truly amazing. I miss you so much.... I’m still waiting for you to forward every single video on the family chat to me. Or call me to come and eat. Even when you just texted me out of the blue telling me that everything is going to be alright and that you’re so proud of me. I will cherish all these little things you’ve done for me. I will keep these memories in my heart forever... I will make you prouder, I promise. I hope you’re getting adjusted well up there. I hope it’s everything you hoped for and more. You lived a beautiful and strong life and truly deserve to walk into those golden gates. We’ll take care of mom so rest easy okay? Have fun and dance with Nana. It’ll be a long time for me until I see you again, but I’ll have many stories to tell you!
P.S. We’ll be going to see you every Sunday so don’t forget to come down!!! I love you my GrannyMaMa!!!! Always and Forever ❤️
-your Jellybelly

Even though I met her later in life, Julie was, in my heart, the grandma that I loved like my own. She welcomed me into the family and into her heart, and I’ll never forget how happy she was when me and her granddaughter Jaleana, my wife, were going to get married. She played the same wedding song all the way there and all the way back, bouncing around like she was young again. I loved her deeply, and though I’m sad to see her gone, I know for a fact that she’s the happiest she’s ever been.

I have a lot of fond memories of my grams, but my most favorite one I have no photo of. It happened sorta often, but I am writing a book called “A Long Winter”. This book has been through a lot of changes and my grams has been there for every change of it. When I made the final changes and actually began writing chapter, after chapter, after chapter I would read them all to her. I’ll never forget how after every emotional beat in the book her face would change. From wonder, to anger, to sorrow, to joy, and it made me extremely happy. She told me that this was her favorite book and that alone blew my mind. Like how could this book that’s not even an official book be her favorite? It made no sense to me, yet she made sure I knew that this book that’s not official yet was one of her favorites. That alone brought me to tears. From that I know that this journey to complete this book is not my journey alone. I know my grams is with me as I’m in the process of writing it, and I know she’ll be there when I complete it. So with that come on grams; our journey’s awaitin!
