Hi John, My thoughts and prayers are with you at your loss of Julie. I remember her coming into my Oky Doky on Pennsylvania, working for me at my Grandview store, waiting on me at a fast food restaurant. I always enjoyed her family and yours. And I was so happy for you both when I sang your wedding. I pray that your memories of happy times carry you through until you can think of Julie with a smile rather than a tear. Take care of you and know that you are surrounded by prayers. Nancy Ginter Jennings, Cannon Falls, MN

Dear John and family,
Please accept my sincere sympathy on the loss of Julie. I grew up with Julie on the North end of town and even went to Kindergarten with her at Marshall Elementary. Although we later attended different schools, I never forgot her loving personality and her smile. Later we meet up again as she worked for PARCO LTD as did I. Again she always had a smile for me even under those stressful days. God bless you during these difficult times. Remember she is always smiling down on us, Lori (Zugenbuehler) Massey
