Julie and I were friends and tennis partners. She was a fierce competitor, always a great sport, and so much fun to be with. I cherish the way she loved others with big-hearted gestures of service. She was an encourager. She spread kindness wherever she went. She loved others well. Her smile radiated the joy that came from within her. In one of our last conversations, Julie told me how excited she was about Stephen Ministry-a ministry committed to walking alongside people in crises. Julie encouraged me in my faith and was a special friend. I'm sure going to miss her. Sending love to her dear family-

I became acquainted with Julie as we shared our love for tennis and played together on the same team for several seasons. We won some we lost some. She just enjoyed being outdoors, playing a great game, and being with her friends that loved her beautiful spirit. We often said she ran like a bunny: fast and untiring. Her Christian witness, her love of family, and friends is her legacy. We will miss you sweet Julie. Prayers to family and friends for comfort, and strength , and precious memories.

Julie, a beautiful lady inside and out. I see her eyes shinning and warm smile. Her little feet would scurry across the tennis court. I wish Bobby and the boys peace in your hearts. Prayers sent your way. 🙏

I will miss you!! We shared much and we prayed for certain things together. I already miss your sweet reassurance and spirit. I can’t imagine how Bobby and your boys feel. You’re on the other side and I wonder if it’s everything we thought and believed. Godspeed and fly high sweet girl. Every now and then, give us a sign. 💞

Although I was a recent friend and neighbor, and only had conversations with Julie in her driveway (CoVid), she was right from the start, warm, caring and compassionate. We talked about her two pups, her lovely garden, tennis, and my adjustment to the south. She made me feel welcome and a part of the block. I will miss her spirit here. To her family and close friends - you were clearly blessed to know her, and her absence must feel like such an aching void. But no doubt she lives in you now.
