Norm and Nancy, my heart goes out to you at the loss of your precious daughter Julie. I offer my deepest sympathy also to Julie's children, grandchildren, and other family and friends who held her dear. I never had the pleasure of meeting Julie. We went to high school together, but were three years apart. What a shame that I never had the chance to meet such a fine person. I hope you find comfort in knowing that her long struggle is finally over and that she is now at peace and with God.
