Aunt Jean, Mark, Tim, Mark Jr., & Brendan - I am so sorry for your loss. Julie was such a big part of your lives - she loved all of you so much. I know she is watching you all from heaven. Many prayers have been sent your way, and will continue for all of you. She is with our dads now, and Sandy, and all the others who have gone on before (I can just picture them all in a great big bear hug!). We miss you Julie! Lots of love,
Lori & Mark

My condolences to the family. I worked with Julie back in her early days at DEP and remember how much her family and friends meant to her. More recently, when I would see her in passing in the office we would reminisce about the old gang. She will be missed, but remembered.

Dear Grant family -

I had the pleasure of being classmates with Julie in high school, and remember fondly as being a very sweet, and kind young lady who was never without a smile on her face. I was so shocked to hear of her sudden passing. Please accept my deepest condolences.

Julia will be remembered as a Toastmaster who stepped up in leadership when needed and served District 31 well. We met only at TM functions but I know about her from fellow TMs who knew her better. See you in heaven, fellow Toastmaster. Applause (standing ovation).

Dear Grant Family,

I was Julie''s supervisor at MassDEP for the past two years and I can truly say that she will be sorely missed, both for her good, competent, strong work effort that greatly contributed to the success of our group, and more importantly for her positive personality and personal integrity. I interacted with her many times every day, I don''t not remember one incident where she said anything negative about a fellow worker or any other person. I think this quality was well addressed at her funeral service yesterday, which was a wonderful tribute to Julie. Again, we will miss her and our prayers are with you.
