I have only pleasant memories of Julia. I always enjoyed my time with her. She loved her life and was loved in return. I will think of her each time I look at my cheetah. It was wonderful that you got to keep her with you for so many years and how wonderful for her to have such a faithful and loving daughter and son in law. We send our deepest sympathy at your loss. Love and miss you Berty's! Andrea and Tom

Just learned of Julia's passing. So sorry to hear this. I always remember her pinching my cheeks and telling me how much I looked like my parents when we would go over for lunch. I enjoyed talking and visiting with her when Mom was in the hospital. Julia was a fun and gentle spirit and she will be missed.
