She was and still is my great grandmother... I have so many memories with Nanny, I don't even know where to begin. I remember all the times we've gone to the movies and Governor's on the weekends. we would go shopping a lot too. She had a lot of sass and it was great. We went to Bar Harbor a lot too. Nanny was my world and I'll miss her, until I'm able too see her again. Love you Nanny, I'll miss you.

I'm so sorry to hear of Julia's passing. She was a resident at Westgate with my mom, who passed away in Feb. I enjoyed chatting with Julia when she played cards, and she would often ask me to shuffle the cards or put them in the box for her ☺. She was kind and very nice to talk to. My sympathies to her family.
