Gail and family
My sympathy to each of you. I have truly enjoyed knowing Julie. I have had the pleasure of working with her through our connection and love of the Hospital Auxiliary. Any project Julie was there with eagerness to help and always with her smile and great sense of humor and of course her GOODIES she always brought “to help us get through the day”. You will be missed my friend. Rest In Peace.

What sad news about Julie. We will always have so many wonderful memories of her, not just her fudge and needhams, but her meat pies and generous spirit. We were so lucky to have dined at her table, and shared so many laughs. Her many years in the meat room were the beginning of a life long friendship with her and Mike, and all her “boys”. Sending our sympathies to all of you.
