    I am a cousin to Juliene. Our family extends our deepest sympathy to Juliene's family and friends. We know that she is rejoicing in Heaven and being welcomed by extended family such as her Mother(V.C.), Father(Sherman), Brother(Buddy), and Grandmother(Ethel Morton). Our thoughts are with them all.
