Julie was always so kind, considerate and an outstanding woman.
The memories of the times we shared when our boys were in high school together are so cherished.
I am so very thankful and blessed to have known her friendship and the Periou family.
She is deeply missed.
With prayers for the Periou family,

Dear Leon, Aaron, Laura and Thomas,

Julie was a source of light and love in my life, and in so many peoples lives. I know this is a difficult time for you and your family. I hope the sorrow you feel in your heart lightens from all the love that surrounds you, and take comfort in knowing you have an angel in heaven that watches over you now. We all loved Julie so much, and she loved her family more than anything in this world. I will cherish the memories of her. She had the best laugh, the kind of laugh that was infectious, she would throw her head back and slap her knee, and would always cut her laughter a bit short, but the smile remained on her face long after. I loved Aunt Julie and will treasure the memories I have of her.

With Love,

Laura Gill
