Deb, John & Donna, Jeanne & John,

May these words comfort you as they have me for many years. “God has a beautiful flower garden and only picks the very best of roses for his beautiful garden.” Our condolences to you Deb and Julie’s family at this time.

I am deeply saddened to hear of Julie’s passing. Thinking about growing up together in the neighborhood brings back such fond memories. We would run in to each other occasionally here and there about town and it always warmed my heart. I am so sorry for your loss—she is gone way too soon. My prayers and thoughts will be with all of you in the coming days.

I first met Julie and her family in 1976 when I began working for Dr. Bartolovich. Sorry I will not be in town to attend the service but my thoughts are with all the family she left behind and to Deb who will miss her dearly.

I was deeply saddened to hear of Julie’s passing over the weekend. Mike and I ran into her this summer and we talked about us moving into “her” house. We will always have so many great memories of her and all the fun we had in the neighborhood in our childhood years. My thoughts and prayers are with Jeanne and John and the rest of the family through their time of sorrow. May Julie rest in peace.
