Today, I flew with a beautiful FA who reminded me so much of Jewelry. I'm sure she was no taller than 4'10", beautiful, hair immaculate, perfect makeup that highlighted her beauty, her perfume was fresh and light, her smile was bigger than she was. Her grace and poise commanded everyone's attention. She was stunning in her "office" as Jewelry called it. She was so professional and went out of her way to make sure I enjoyed my flight. When we landed I thanked her for the great job she did and for making my flight so enjoyable. I asked for her name so I could send a letter to the airline, she replied "I'm Angel". :)

I saw a crew from Delta yesterday unload from the van and watched them head off to work. I smiled and admired them as they walked past me and told them to have a great trip. They were beautiful and happy, but missing the perfection that Julie had. I'll never forget how beautiful she was in her uniform and that smile of hers!!! big grin

Something triggered this memory tonight. Julie was about 3 years old and riding in the car with me when I was pulled over by the police for "speeding" on Michigan Avenue. I remember thanking the officer for the ticket because it made me more mindful that I needed to slow down. So off we went to the meat market at a much slower pace. As I'm peering into the meat counter waiting for the person next to me to finish ordering, Julie looks up at me and says, "Mom, are you going to jail?" All eyes are now on me as they surely must have been wondering what prompted my little girl to ask such a thing. One of those "wish you had waited till we got home to ask me that" question. LOL. Loved that girl at 3. Loved her at 33. And even now, she still makes me smile!

Last night as the boys were eating Clementine's, Jacob said remember how Aunt Julie always gave us Clementine's & a mozzarella cheese stick for a snack. I was so happy to hear him come up with a memory of her that I wanted to post it!

Thinking of Julie and Amy's obsession with UPS trucks when they were younger. Why, I don't know. Must have been the association of Christmas treats every year from Aunt Jill. There's a photo somewhere of them posing next to a UPS truck. Well, it's a pleasant memory which makes me smile everytime I see the brown truck and at this time of year, they were plentiful.

Thinking of Jewelry on Thanksgiving Eve. With her flying schedule we lucked out and had Julie and Tommy for several dinners. Even had a couple other FAs join us one year, that was the year of "stuffin' muffins". I fondly remember Thanksgiving 2005 when I whipped out my potato ricer and Jules laughed at me for having such a device. She had never heard of such a thing and couldn't imagine why I had one. I promised her they would be the smoothest mashed potatoes ever. She agreed at dinner!

Was of course thinking of Julie this week, like everyone else. Was just laughing out loud at the year (maybe 5 years ago), she called me at 6AM, so that I could wish her a Happy Birthday! I will always remember how happy she sounded, how could I ever be upset for being woke up by that laugh? I think she was cracking herself up for being so silly!!!

Julie- thinking of you today on your 35th birthday! I remember how much fun we had on one of your birthday's (I think 28th) where we totally trashed your house with balloons, streamers, and various decorations. It was especially funny when you opened the toilet and found a balloon the next day. I will never forget the look of utter surprise when you walked around the corner and we all jumped out and squirted you with silly string. I think our over the top decorations were such a surprise that you were actually speechless. It took us hours to help you and Tommy clean that house. That was still fun as we were celebrating a special day with you. I love you and miss you so much but I know that you are always near. I can feel it in my heart. Happy Birthday!

One day when the kids were little, I decided it would be fun to take them for a ride on the city bus. Julie was about 2 yrs. old. We walked several blocks to the bus stop and as soon as the bus pulled up, Julie began to cry! She cried even harder when we got on the bus. The very nice bus driver tried to assure Julie that everything would be alright and started to sing songs to her. It was my first indication that Julie wasn't much for traveling! Did she prove ME wrong!!!

This thought was triggered by Laurie Martin's post on FB about their recent visit to the crayola factory. Even though none in my famiy were craft oriented, Julie often took it upon herself to make little gifts for family and friends. She spent hours creating a "Crayon Wreath" for Jessica Vines to display in her baby's room. Julie was so proud of it and we sort of marveled at how clever she was making it. Only one little thing! She left it in the back seat of the car until it was time for her visit with Jessica. In the meantime the crayons melted all over the car seat! What a mess! Didn't discourage Julie in the least! She promptly made another one and delivered it safely!

The first time Julie came to see us after we adopted our dog Jo, I have an image of her I can never shake. Never would want to, it was SO funny. I was in the kitchen and heard Julie say, "HMM....Cynthia, is she allowed up here?" I came around the corner and saw Julie looking UP to our dog, who was seated RIGHT next to her on the couch! I was cracking up, because you could tell Julie felt guilty ratting out the dog! They bonded instantly, I guess the saying dogs are a good judge of character turned out to be true! big grin

When Jewelery started flying for Song, she was very excited because Kate Spade designed the uniforms and accessories. She was bursting with excitement to order her uniforms. Jeff and I were called over when the catalog arrived to help her pick out her uniforms. Acting on Julie's excitement, we took the liberty to start mixing and matching different items and planning her uniforms. We had skirts, shirts, pants, sweaters, scarves, bags, name tags, and shoes all lined up for Julie to pick out. Julie took one look at our suggestions and said "Guys, I have to look like the pictures, they already did the designing and we can't change them". We all laughed becuase we had completly changed the uniforms. Jewelry sure was striking in her Kate Spade! She loved the beautiful green and it looked so great on her. The day that her Butterfly name tag arrived we celebrated and she wore the name tage the whole day without her uniform.

One night I was driving home from my sister's house with Scott, Amy and Julie when I learned that Scott had a beer while we were visiting there. He corrected me by saying that he had TWO beers. With that I freaked out repeating: "TWO BEERS! TWO BEERS!" I was turning the corner at a busy intersection just as I said those words when all of a sudden the car spun around in a complete circle on the wet pavement. I ended up in the same direction I was heading and just continued on my merry way. I think the kids all had white knuckles and I never heard another word from any of them the rest of the way home. You would have thought that I was the one who had the beers!!! Everytime I turn that corner the words "Two Beers" always come to mind. I'm sure Scott and Amy remember this. Would have loved to have heard their conversation later in the evening!

We had Lexi's confirmation Wed. April 20th, and it was very moving when the Bishop announced Lexi's chosen confirmation name "Julie Ann"....She was with us all evening at that beautiful ceremony when Lexi was filled with the Holy Spirit!

Whenever we would hang out with Tom and Jules, we would screen our calls on the house phone so we didn't interrupt our socializing. We had a little chant that we would do whenever a number came up as unknown. We would chant "unknown caller, unknown caller, unknown caller" and ignore the phone. I remember all of the silly voices Julie would use and we would all laugh and giggle like little kids! It made me smile today when I had an "unknown caller".

I've been thinking a lot about Julie lately. As I always do when Easter approaches. The first time our families met Julie came across the street with an Easter egg when I was about 8. For many years after we carried on that tradition always saving out an egg that we had died especially to exchange with Julie. Miss her.
Love,
Adrienne

I was e-mailing Scott about the restaurant Amy, John & Jake went to last night and when I thought of Jake ordering a Filet Mignon, it reminded me of the time Julie was at a restaurant with a date and it was suggested that she try Filet Mignon. She sweetly replied, no thanks, I don't care for fish. She was truly her mother's daughter!

Could not help thinking about Julie all day yesterday, while knowing she would have loved our party!! Served 46 people corned beef and cabbage dinner, and our entertainment was a sing along complete with keyboard and words! Much fun, Love you Julie, Aunt Judy and Uncle Paddy

St. Patrick and Julie just sort of went together! I don't know how or exactly when she fell in love with that feast day but it became another day to remember the people she loved in a special way. So on Julie's behalf, here is the Irish Prayer that she liked well enough to frame: "May the road be sure and straight...And your burden light to carry....May there be food and drink along the way....And with kind friends you may tarry. May the grass grow green beneath your feet...And the fire glow bright in your grate...May your children be fair and strong of limb...And lost strangers welcome at your gate....May you see old age both hail and hearty...In the company of friend and kin...May your passing be in peace and joy...In God's grace and free from sin." Happy St. Patrick's Day, Julie! Pray for us!

Susan Faria Wednesday, March 17, 2010 09:51 PM
Thank you for sharing that, Aunt Sue! Been thinking of Julie today with a heavy heart and sharing this Irish prayer made me feel the day end in peace. And yes, Julie pray for us! Love you all...

Since its March, everyone knows how much Julie liked St. Patty's day. Thought I would tell a story about Dublin. Julie, Kelli and I went there for a girls trip. We requested a room together, and they asked if we wanted 3 beds, we said SURE! We got there, to two single beds & one queen. Kelli & I thought it'd be funny to let Julie sleep in the biggest bed. (Why I don't remember:) Anyway, we planned out each of our days, seeing tours, etc. My favorite part was hanging out in a little pub down the street from The Wynn Hotel and drinking Bailey's on the Rocks. We were so tired at the end of each day, but Julie insisted we take advantage of every moment. I think we did. Man, am I thankul we did. On the way home to the states, we were with the pact "No Flight Attendant left behind"-which meant if we all couldn't fly home, we didn't go. Luckily, we all got on. Julie & I got to sit together in FC and enjoy a retirement party of some pilot we didn't know. While poor Kelli got stuck in coach. I haven't been back overseas since that trip, and who knows maybe I never will again. Luckily, I will always have a great memory of Ireland with two of my dearest friends.

The boys reminded me of Julie yesterday without them even realizing it. They were in a freeze dance contest at the Little League Opening Day. Bradley won. It reminded me of when Julie and I were in a hoola-hooping contest at the Dolphin Village when we were little and Julie won! I was so proud of her and a little envious too. She won all kinds of Hawaiian Tropic merchandise. We had a lot of fun walking around that shopping center while our parents were working. Mainly we enjoyed the ice cream shop.

As I mentioned before, Julie and I loved to fly together and tried to "buddy bid" as often as Delta would let us. One month we got a Louisville, Kentucky trip. We didn't know what to do, so we did what we loved, shopped! We found, what we thought, was an exclusive Louisville store called Tuesday Morning. We fell in love. We bought so much stuff, our backs hurt. So the next month we bid trips that went there again. This time we brought nearly empty bags to hold all our new finds. We kept wondering when the store was really going to close, as the outside said, "Store Closing Sales". We went shopping each week for a month, until Julie found out Tuesday Morning is a chain and their motto was our sales are like "Store Closing Sale Prices"!!!!!!!!!!! We didn't feel so "lucky" afterall!

I will never forget how beautiful and absolutely perfect Jules looked every time we picked her up at the airport in her uniform. She carried herself with grace and elegance that made her stand out in a crowd. It was always a race between Jeff and I to see who could jump out of the car first and swoop her up into our arms. Julie would always laugh about what people thought when the two of us “attacked” her at the curb and picked her up. Jeff and I were always so proud every time we picked her up; it was always such a special moment when she arrived. There she was with her beautiful smile waving us down with her cell phone in one hand and her roll-aboard in the other!

Cynthia Kuhl Thursday, December 17, 2009 04:57 PM
I picked her up once & told her we could go let her change b/f dinner. Julie said, "No, I'll just wear this to dinner." It turned out the hostess was an ex-Delta Flight Attendant and gave us all the fried pickles we could eat... on the house! She kept calling Julie her "Sky sister." (By the time we left, Julie was a very stuffed, Sky sister!)

Wanted to share the words of the last card Julie sent me. She sent this card after a trip to Texas. It said, "May all your good come back to you." She was thanking me for driving an hour and half to come pick her up. When she had just FLOWN across how many states to get here!?!?!(Do you see how that just sounds funny? She was always thinking of others) I loved all the cards she sent me & thankfully have saved every single one. My favorite card was one that said, "If your not going to snort when you laugh, why even bother?". Julie had seen me snort many, many times. That girl was Funny!

Last year for Christmas, Julie, Kim and I decided to have a spa day instead of buying gifts for each other and our families (though Julie broke the rules and still bought my boys something :) ). So Julie took one weekend off in January so that we could have our girls day. The morning of our appointment, the spa called and said too many people had called in sick and they would have to cancel our appointment. I was pretty bummed since it took a lot of planning to get all three of us in at the same time and for Julie to get the day off. So instead we went and got pedicures at the mall, had lunch and went shopping. We had such a great day. Kim and I are planning on doing the same this year but it will not be without a heavy heart... Miss and love you Jules...

Julie & I exchanged socks for our birthdays every year. We did this because it was an inexpensive gift to mail & because like friends, socks come in pairs. I would always give her Shamrocks or Texas socks and she would always keep me on my toes with something cute or funny.(It made sense to us:) When we went to visit Tommy last month, he gave me a pair of socks Julie had hid away for me. I just know how excited she must have been to find me such cute socks. I think I have worn them about 10 times already. It made me laugh today, I pulled out the pair she sent me for my Birthday last year. I don't know how she did it, but Julie found me socks that SING Frosty the Snowman!!!!!! You better believe I will be wearing them and wishing her and I could laugh at them together, just like we did last year. Sure miss our girl.

When Julie and Amy were in grade school, I remember sending them beautiful fallen leaves off our trees at this time of year...I think Julie wanted to use them for show and tell, and she missed the fall season in Michigan...I was reminded of this today, as my nephew Clyde, was blowing all the thousands of leaves in my yard for me....I still remember trying to pick out the most colorful and perfect leaf!!

When Julie and I were about 10-12 years old, she came to stay with my family in Michigan for a week or two. One night we decided to take a walk with my dad around the subdivision. As we were walking, we started singing and all three of us made up this silly dance routine...it ended with the lyrics "na,na,na,na.....na,na,na,na.....hey,hey,hey....goodbye" We did some little twirl thing a few times and then waved goodbye with our hands! We would be walking around my subdivision doing this! This was always a funny memory between the three of us and again proves how fun Julie was!

My heart is just full of sadness today about missing Julie. I miss her so much as I am sure so many of us do. The last time I saw Julie, (late June)she called me to tell me she was going to the mall and to run some errands on my end of the town and would I like to join her. Amazingly enough, I was already at the mall, so she met me there. She was so excited to tell me that she and Tommy had just been to IKEA and bought new bedroom furniture. I helped her shop for new bedding for their NEW bed! We had such a great conversation as we strolled along. I am so happy we got to have some time to visit alone as the last time I got to see her. Again, I miss her so much!

Julie came out to visit Jeff and I this past March and we planned a leisurely drive in the Jeep along the Apache Trail. We ended up hiking up to the Tonto National Monument to see the Indian cliff dwellings. It was a “short and easy” 1.5 mile hike. It was quite the adventure. As we were hiking through an area infested with bees Julie announced that she was scared because she had never been stung and was sure she was allergic to them. We kicked into high gear and zipped through that part and made it to the cliff dwellings. It was an awesome experience to be in the dwellings, Jules really loved it. On the way back down the trail we ran across a Western Diamondback rattlesnake! Jeff wanted to throw a rock at it to scare it away. Jewelry and I instantly started to run backwards and question Jeff’s sanity. A Park Ranger came 15 minutes later and helped the group that had now formed get around the snake. Jewelry and I were the only ones left to go. I wasn’t going near it. Jewelry said if she made it through the bees, I could clear the snake. Jewelry suggested I climb on her shoulders and she would make a run for it, HA! So she started running and I followed. I about knocked her down because she slowed down to quickly. We made it off the trail and had a great picnic without bees or snakes!

It was the day before Julie was born and I went to my scheduled doctor's appointment. The doctor told me our baby was likely to be born that very day and if I wanted to speed things up, I should take a walk around the block. I went home and crawled into bed to delay the birth just one more day. It worked! Julie was born on October 1 (my Dad's birthday) at 7:02am. (Just kidding, Amy. It was 5:07am) My Dad was elated and took the day off from work. What a joyful day that was for all of us! Julie was the only one of our kids born with dark hair and lots of it. When I brought her home from the hospital, three year old Amy asked me if she was Mexican. Do you remeber that Scott and Amy? Thirty Four Years ago today. Happy Birthday, Julie & Dad!

Susan Faria Thursday, October 1, 2009 09:24 PM
Happy Birthday to Julie and Grandpa! What a special day for them to share together. I just love reading these stories! You guys share the best (and funniest) memories!!

Scott Frank Friday, October 2, 2009 06:54 AM
That is hilarious! I don't remember Amy saying that. Maybe that's where we got the idea that she was adopted.

Cynthia Kuhl Monday, December 14, 2009 07:32 PM
That makes sense, one year Julie called me at 6AM(!), so I could wish her a Happy Birthday! It must have been 7:02am, Florida time! I never knew that, then again...I never questioned Julie. She made me laugh too much!

When Amy and I were little we invented a game where we would stand on the bed and tip forward, hands first into the partially closed bedroom door. That allowed us to slam the door with all of our weight and make a lot of racket. You can imagine how great that would be. Well, Julie was just a toddler at the time and, as such, she happened to be toddling down the hallway. Being slightly unsteady, she was using her left hand on the wall for balance. When she reached the door to the bedroom where Amy and I were playing the previously described awesome game, she put her thumb in the opening between the door and the door jam. This time when Amy and I slammed the door it seemed to resist a little so we kept pushing on it. I seem to remember it closing far enough to latch before we heard Julie wailing. She ended up needing several stitches but I was always amazed that it wasn't any worse than that. Our parents were none too happy with us and that was the last time we ever played the door slamming game.

When Julie was still in grade school she took on a little project one summer looking after a Holy Name parishioner who lived in a condo on the west side of 49th Street and 10th Ave. N. Martha May was in her 80's and bed ridden with brittle bone disease. She appreciated Julie coming to prepare her lunch and doing little odd jobs for her. Maybe Kelly went with her to do this. Anyway, it was an early example of Julie's love and concern for others.

Kelly Friday, September 25, 2009 08:51 AM
Yes, I remember that. We also volunteered at the Nursing Home across the street from Holy Name. There was this little old lady- Maggie. She would get so happy to see us because she thought we were her daughters everytime. She was our favorite to visit- so sweeet...

One summer shortly after we moved here, we wanted to make some money. Julie and I along with a few neighbor kids put on the Razzle Dazzle show. We went around the neighborhood selling tickets. People actually bought them and came! I will always remember Julie performing her baton routine with her Princess Leia hair. It was a lot of fun putting the show together and we joked for years when we were short on cash that we could always have another Razzle Dazzle Show. (By the way, we made enough money for all the performers to go and see Ghost Busters.)

Susan Faria Tuesday, September 29, 2009 10:03 PM
I love this memory, Amy - that is great! I can totally picture it in my head! I also loved the one about you making up songs with Julie and her believing the James Taylor song was your original! I laughed for the longest time after reading that! :)

We had an office downtown for a few months from mid-2003 to Jan. of 2004. It was pretty much a pain because it only had one hour parking in front of our building. The employees would just drive around the block and switch spaces. One day on the way to switch spots, Julie got in a fender bender. A city truck pulled out of a construction zone and hit her. After the police came and did the report, she continued around the block to park. She came into the office for less than 30 minutes and then wanted to go home to make the arrangements to get her car repaired. When she went out to her car she had a parking ticket for parking longer than an hour in the spot. She was livid. She marched right down to the parking police station which was a few blocks from the office. She fought the parking ticket and won. Not much they could argue, she had a police report showing she was involved in a car accident 25 minutes before she was supposedly parking in a spot for over an hour. She was pretty fired up about it.

Sean Greatsinger-Freeman Tuesday, October 6, 2009 07:00 PM
That was so funny, Amy. I remember sitting on their porch that night and Jules had to tell the story several times. We were laughing so hard we couldn't follow the story!

Shortly after we moved to Florida, my Aunt Jill came down from Michigan with her family for a vacation. We were all going to Disney with our cousins their first time. When we got there Julie wasn't feeling so well. I can't remember what attraction we were visiting but Julie ended up getting real sick to her stomach and my mom had to take her out. While they were waiting for us to finish, my mom told Julie that this was their first time at Disney and she didn't want to ruin it so just try to act like you feel o.k. When we got out of the show or ride, my aunt asks Julie how she is doing and as she is saying "I feel fine" she throws up all over the place. That was Julie always being a sport!

Mom Monday, September 14, 2009 09:34 PM
Julie's mother did learn a lesson from this. Years later when we were at Disney with another Michigan family, it was Amy who got sick and that time I drove her straight home. Maybe we were just getting sick of Disney! :)

Amy Myers Monday, September 14, 2009 09:47 PM
You didn't mention how we got lost on the way home. Naples is such a pretty city!

Mom Tuesday, September 15, 2009 08:04 PM
I knew Amy wouldn't let that one slide by!

Speaking of Lola and Jin... When she got those dogs she was so excited to show them off. She had invited Kim and I over to see her new babies. So we came with little gifts for the dogs and had a mini "doggie shower". She was so proud of those puppies and I don't think anyone could love anything more than she loved them. She even laughed when showing off pictures of the couch they tore up a few months later. I would have had a hard time smiling about that one but they were perfect in her eyes...lol

Monica Obie Friday, December 18, 2009 03:42 PM
Julie gave me a picture of that couch. The last time I babysat the puppies Julie came to get them and asked me if there were any casualties. I denied they did anything wrong because they are my grandpuppies and do no wrong, but she was standing there smiling and I said "oh, ok" and showed her the unimportant straw beach hat Jin had chewed up. She took a picture of it. For Christmas last year she gave me a picture holder with a collage of puppy mischief pictures (the couch, the hat, pizza box stuck in doggie door...)
I miss her.

Julie & I use to buddy bid at Delta, which means we would always request to fly together.Pretty scary,huh? We would get on each side of that beverage cart and "smooze" our way from the front to the back. This was about 9 years ago, neithier of us were married. Our pride and joy was our only nephews, Ethan & Jacob. We both wore pics of them around our necks in our badge holders. If someone ever saw my pic of Ethan b\f they got to see her pic of Jacob, oh she was sure to say,"here`s my nephew...isn`t he the cutest?" Idon't think anyone ever said who was cuter, but Julie would always say," its ok, they're friends, you don't have to choose". We even made them signs and got on the Today Show with their pics. If I remember right she glued Jacob's pic in just the right spot, she got him on t.v. She sure had fun reminding me of that! I think my sister might still have our 15 seconds of fame!!!

Those dogs! We knew Julie and Tom would have their hands full with two very smart Jack Russells! Julie was always calling to give us the latest update on their mischievious adventures - especially Lola, the escape artist! So many times Julie was out canvassing the neighborhood looking for Lola. Once Julie came home to hear a message on her machine saying: This message is for Lola"....the person read the tag wrong and was holding the dog for the owner. But the funniest story was when Julie called to say she was looking out her kitchen window and saw Lola in the backyard playing with something white which she couldn't make out. She went outside to investigate and Lola had dragged Julie's bra through the doggie door and was having fun with it. At least Lola didn't escape with it!

This is certainly something I don't think Julie shared with a lot of people, but it always made Coleen and I chuckle. Very seriously one day (can't remember exactly when but I know it was w/in the last few years), Julie told us of an elaborate plan she had if someone ever broke into her house while she was home alone. She would do what anyone of us would do....pretend to be blind and act like she knew who the person was and continue on as normal until she could get away. Coleen and I always teased her about that and were glad that she never had to test that idea out!

Kelly Andrade Friday, September 11, 2009 08:27 AM
I had forgotten all about that! She had shared her plan with Kim and I also... Love that girl!!!!!

One of the memories that Julie and I always talked about was our first and only fight. I was in 5th grade and Julie was in 4th and her mom was driving us home from school at some point at the beginning of the drive I must have poked Julie in the eye - and for the remainder of the 20 minute ride we continued to pass notes to eachother about whether I did it on purpose or not. We always laughed about this because neither of us remembered how the event occurred just that it did and we were so mad for about 15 minutes.

What is really funny is that when we talked about it we also brought up the time when we were in high school and she was walking next to me I spit out my gum and it landed in her hair - this though did not result in any arguement just laughter - and Amy? did I do it on purpose? I can't remember what led to the gum episode either.

I miss you Julie - Earnie - Cousin - sister Best Bud- I could fill a book with the crazy things I have done with the Frank Girls!!!!

Amy Myers Tuesday, September 8, 2009 07:10 PM
Coleen if we are being honest about the gum incident it most certainly was done on purpose as you said "has anyone ever spit gum in your hair" as you were doing it. It would be really hard to believe that would be an accident after that comment. Luckily, Julie found it funny even after she had to cut the gum out of her hair :)

Julie would come in the back door of the office and struggle with getting her large Delta bag through the door. It was filled with healthy snacks, nuts, yogurt, salad fixings and a large water bottle. She would graze all day. She also became the "Refrigerator Bully". She would press the Page button on the phone and announce "everyone has until 2:00 pm to check the food in regrig - then I will throw away whatever is not claimed". It worked every time. It never works when I try to get the staff to clean out the refrig.

My parents, siblings and I were devastated to hear of the loss of Julie. We all send our love and prayers to Julie's husband and family. Julie was a dear family friend while she and I were in HS together. My younger sister (Christy) played on the basketball team with her, and she and I went to a St. Pete Catholic HS Morp dance together. What fun that was...double date with Jess Vines ( :) hi Jess ) and Paul Puodziukas. Having long since moved away from Florida, the last time I saw Julie was when she visited my house, to say hello to my family, while she was home during her freshman year college break. Within the last year I reconnected with Julie on Facebook, and were getting back up to speed on each others' lives when she left. I feel blessed that I was given a chance to say hello again before she left for Heaven. She was a selfless, cheerful person whose love for life was contagious. She must have left in complete happiness for the love that surrounded her, and will live forever in the hearts of those she touched including mine and those of my family.
