I can't find the words to tell you how so sorry I am. There is a saying that says " a person comes into your life for a reason, season or a lifetime." I'll be forever grateful for Julie. I believe Julie came into our lives for a reason. I know she was there for Kevin when he needed someone. I'm happy he had someone to lean on when we were going through Dons cancer and when Don passed, she helped Kevin get through that difficult time in his life. My thoughts and prayers are with your family. God bless!

We always had great fun at the race track. I'm going to miss my tech partner. I'm sorry I won't be able to make the memorial. Sending love and prayers to you all.

I have known Julie since high school. I will remember her always with a smile on her face, and a fun-loving, goofy personality. She will be missed greatly.

I so clearly remember the first time I met Julie. Mary Ellen called me and said 'What are you doing?' After I replied nothing, Mary Ellen said 'come on over to our back deck and meet your new best friend!'
That is all it took -
I adore your tenacity, bravery, and ability to make any stranger into a friend. An amazing mother - the biggest champion to your kids! You will be greatly missed in our lives.
Cheers to you, beautiful!

Julie was my 22nd birthday present. I am so honored that God blessed me with her. And on my 51st birthday she gave us Sarah. She touched so many lives in such a loving way. I will love you always and miss you Jules. I know you will be watching over us. You left your children Brian, Sarah and Jack with such a great legacy of love .

I remember last year when she volunteered to run the day care for the Alpha program at our church. All 4 of my kids made an instant connection with her. She was a loving, caring and selfless woman. She was the reason my kids wanted to come back week after week!! When they realized she wasn’t doing it again this year, they were hesitant on going. Julie will never be forgotten, she will forever be loved and missed. My dear friend Julie, please know that your family has a large support group here for them. We will hug them, love them, help them and most importantly we will pray for and with them!!!!! Love always!

Graham took a real liking to Julie. He had the opportunity to work with Julie last year at Alliance. He knew Julie as “Aunt Julie”, but he got to know her as “co-worker/answer my questions” Julie. She made him feel important and valued. Julie was kind and relaxed with him. I cherish the kindness that was extended to my child. Much love today and always.
