A loving tribute to my beautiful friend Julie, We met when I was 22 and you were 23. You were the person I could share my most private thoughts and secrets with, You sat with me as I was in labor with my daughter and encouraged me each step of the way. We did all the things besties do, dieted together, shopped together, baked together our families traveled together to see Bouchard Gardens, ride ferries, and just enjoy each other. Julie, you have always been as close as the phone, and we have spent many hours talking via long distance. I love you my friend, and I know you are in the Kingdom, spending time with your son Aaron, and your Mom and Dad and your Brother. Finally You are free of the pain and the suffering your journey has taken you on. You have been a wonderful friend, and I will always cherish our memories we have shared over the past 45 years.
I love you Julie.
