Julie also is survived by several friends and church groups that she loved like family.
As we sat down to prepare her services, we were faced with the having to think about her life in its entirety. The conclusion came down to the simple fact being, if she loved you it was with her whole heart. She would come to your aid if needed, defend you if able, and love you unconditionally. Julie was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, friend, and above all else, a Christ follower. She loved the Lord and that was who gave her the ability to love the was able and to forgive freely.
