    I am so saddened hearing this loss. I never knew Julie lived here in Wilmington. She was a wonderful gal and very special indeed. She certainly will be missed by so many. Go's bless you my friend.

    Sorry to hear about Julie's passing. She was a wonderful addition during her decade at CBRE. She added a sparkle to the work environment and was always so supportive. We remember her fondly

    Julie was the first girl I met at O'Connell H.S. I knew her well, she was a wonderful individual and greatly helped me grow as a person. I always looked forward to seeing her at each of our five year reunions at O'Connell. So much time has gone by, but you can always jet back in time in meeting your classmates. The first two graduating classes were so close together in spirit. Yes Julie, you met a great deal to me. I'm sorry you had to leave us. Look forward to seeing you again.
