My thoughts and prayers are with Julia's family and friends. Julia always looked out for my mom and was very nice to her when she lived at Miller Court. She will be missed, but Heaven just became much happier and more energetic.

Family and Friends of Julia, I have know Julia for years thru Kalamazoo Ophthalmology. She was a special person, I found her easy to talk to and we shared a hobby of reading "laugh out loud" books. Several times she brought me books to read and we would share the humor in them. She was a very generous person and I could always tell she lived for the good side of every day. It has been a pleasure to know her all these years and she is one person I have learned from on how to age gracefully. Marian Birdsall

She was a very positive person and always full of spunk and energy. May she rest in peace. My condolences go out to you and your family. Sincerely, Bev Brooks

Joe & Family, I am sorry to hear of your loss. The times I visited your house, were always made more welcome by your Mom. We only have one Mother in this life, but she has left you a better man. Joe, take comfort in the memories, and though the loss will always be there, the sorrow won't. My thoughts & prayers are with you, God Bless. God Bless.
