    Julie was such a wonderful friend to my daughter, Caroline, and I was always so happy to welcome her into our home. My family and I always enjoyed her company and we are grateful for all the memories we have of her. Julie projected warmth, grace, friendliness and a confidence rarely seen in such a young person. I remember so well when Julie used to park her Jeep in our cul-de-sac to take Caroline on a shopping trip or a lunch/dinner date with friends. Whenever they went on a night out on the town to the Richmond art exhibits or the Cary Street shopping district they always enjoyed themselves and attracted the admiring glances of those around them. Knowing Julie was a privilege. She was truly the best friend anyone could hope for.
