Such a kind, sweet soul. The boys and I are better for having known you. You've gone to a place where there are no more ailments and I just know you're dancing with Elvis! Rest in peace

My dear friend Julie, So hard to believe you’re gone. It’s been a blessing to have you in my life all these years and now that you’re gone; you’ve taken a piece of my heart with you ? I will always treasure the time we spent together! I love and miss you so much! I find comfort that you’re with our Lord and that I’ll see you again and we’ll have some pierogi ? Love, Roseann
