I have a lot of good memories of Aunt Julia while I got to stay with JoAnn for a week or two every summer. She was so nice to me.

Julia was such a blessing to so many people and will truly be missed! We are so sorry that we can't make it to the viewing or the funeral. Uncle David let us know and we were planning to come but health issues got in the way. Again, we are so very sorry and will miss him dearly.
