    Rest in sweet peace my dear friend. John, Jeremy, Molly and Zachary just know you are entrusted with a treasure of wonderful memories filled with love and laughter that only Julie could give. I will miss my friend but will always be grateful to have known her, to have laughed with her and to have shared a part of her life. Julie was a remarkable, loving and special person.

    I am so sorry for your heart breaking loss.

    I am deeply saddened to hear of your mothers death. She has been one of my dearest old friend who found me on Face Book some years ago and we have traded thoughts and wishes over the years. She never mentioned any illness and I am very sad that she has passed. We used to ride bikes together, play and loved to spend the night at the old Tybee beach house. We lost touch when we moved away for many years. She was a special lady and I will deeply miss her presence. My deepest sympathy to you all. You were her heart.

    We will miss you so much. You were the best neighbor we have ever had. Thank you so much for being so kind to us and treating us like family. I will never forget when you immediately and loving stepped in for my children when I became ill. You hold a very special place in our heart. We will love you forever ❤️.

    John, Molly & Zach, we are here for you. You are in our prayers. Love MarQuis, Matina, MaQai, Myla and Madison Bell.
