To Kirby, Konor, Katherine, Klaiire and Mr. Scruffos as she would call him lol, I cannot tell you how heavy my heart is with the loss of the most beautiful person I have ever known. I pray God gives you the strength and comfort to get through this very difficult time in your lives knowing she was truly an angel among us who taught us how to love others through her compassionate touch, words, hugs, listening and contagious smile and bubbly personality! She was always such a ray of sunshine and I will miss her terribly as I know many will. She had such a beautiful energy that I can only aspire to be like and truly "Live Like Julie!" I want you all to know that on our walks she just beamed talking about all of you and oh how proud of each and every one of you she was and how much she deeply loved you all!! Every smile and bubbly story about you she couldn't wait to share with others! She was just a joy to be around, a bright sunny light in our world and I am so very grateful to have had her as one of my very best friends, sister, mom all rolled up in one amazing woman! We were so blessed to have her in our lives and inspire us all to live life like she did - she was one of a kind and we will never forget her loving spirit! I pray you find comfort in knowing she's happy, wants you to be happy and will be reunited some day. She would always say things were part of Gods plan and purpose and we always agreed we just need to trust in knowing that. You all have her joyous spirit in your smiles and personality! What greater gift could she give you all to carry and share with others!

She will be missed dearly. My prayers are with you as you grieve her loss and celebrate her life.

She has a very special place in our hearts for sure. Julie was so proud of her family. She glowed when asked. A mother's bond is so strong. May her Forever Love for you and God 's Love bring you comfort.

Kirby and Family. Deepest sympathies to you and your family. I will miss the mornings that I knew Julie would be bringing one of your vehicles for us to work on. Julie always had that smile and positive altitude when she walked into my store. And, when she said "have a great day" I knew she meant it.
And I wish to share with you and your family my favorite passage from the Bible:
The Lord Bless You and keep you; The Lord make His face Shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up His countenance upon you and give you Peace.
