The loss of Julie is breaking my heart. I will always cherish the great memories of her and aunt babe in Burlington having lunch and our dunking donuts coffee or our meeting up place of joann fabric store parking lot .our late night of texting when I had to stay at hotel for my medical appointments. And the words of wisdom on to not think about the worst just think of the positive of a test result..and our love of sewing. Still seeing the great big smile when we brought her a new sewing machine from ny to her that aunt babe got .we will miss you but we will keep smiling for thats what you would do .Tom, Addison,and rest of the family im so sorry for your loss. Julie is a beautiful angel who will be always with you.

So sorry to hear of Julie’s passing. I worked with Julie and her mother Clara for many years before my retirement at Tuttle Printing. I have a lot of good memories of stuff we did there.
