  1. R.I.P Dear Friend Julie you will always be in my ❤ filled with memories that we shared growing up.🙏🏼🙏🏼

  2. Andrea Josh & Sara

    Julie was my 2nd cousin. Her Mom, Janet was my Mom, Alice Turner’s 1st cousin and best friend. We grew up not far from each other and the families were always together. As a matter of fact, you may know this but Janet’s Mom, Helen was my Grandma Margaret Daggett’s sister and even more strange was that those two women married 2 brothers! Your great Grandpa Gene was my Grandpa Art’s brother.

    We had a great family and now it has really dwindle down. I am so sorry about Julie. I know she went thru a lot and admire her strength. Keep all your fond, fun and endearing memories of her close to your hearts and she will stay with you forever.

    My thoughts and prayers will be with you in these next days as you navigate thru saying Good Bye to your loving Mom.

    God Bless, Hugs & Love to you

  3. She had a heart of gold, beautiful picture of your Mom. Thoughts & prayers to all of you🙏🏻💕

  4. Sara, Josh, Andi & family, my condolences are with each of you. Your mom was strong, and fun, driven, bull headed and the hardest working lady I know. I see her within each of you.

    Sara, you have her spunk. Josh, you have her hard working -driven mindset. And Andi, you listen, give and care just like her.

    Thank you for working together to get through this. We are here to help you and will do our best to remember her hospitality.

    We love you. ♥️
