Julia or Julie as I knew her was a fine example of God's love. She showed kindness to everyone throughout her life. She was practical, loving, and very dedicated to her God, her family and her friends. Her dad was my brother by "adoption" (His mom adopted me much later in his life). Adoption is another word for love. I came to love and feel a part of the family. Although, we have not kept closely in touch the loving bonds are still there. She will be missed by so many. My life has been forever changed by having her come my pathway.
