Please accept my deepest sympathy for the loss of such a beautiful and caring human being. I knew Julia since 1986 when I started working as a RN out of school and she was immediately someone that I loved. I am saddened by her passing. We were going to meet up again after so many years had passed. With all going on in life and the past year, it didnít happen. I am so regretful. Gary, Heather, Jill and Jeffrey you had an angel and I am holding you all in thought and prayer.
