    Please accept my deepest sympathy. Mr. Julius was a good man. I am thankful for the time we shared when Linda ministered at First Magnolia PFWB. May God comfort you during this time of loss. Buddy Mitchell

    Julius was a blessing to all who knew him. I looked forward to seeing him every day at work. No matter how bad he may have felt you never knew. He was an encourager like no other. I loved him dearly and will deeply miss him. My prayers are with you during this time and the difficult days ahead.
