  1. May each of you find courage to face tomorrow as you rest in the knowledge that we truly care about each of your needs and that we will be here to walk beside you in your journey of grief.

    Eddie Beagles and the staff of Legacy Cremation & Funeral Services

  2. Oh Julie; my very, very special friend my life will never be the same without you in it! I miss all the things we would do together; our daily phone calls & text, going to lunch, our visits, playing bingo, catching up on family & friends & fixing one another good things to eat. Most of all I will miss your love, voice, smile, laughter, wisdom, kindness & great personality. It’s so hard to accept that after 40+ years of friendship that I won’t be able to see you, hear your voice or do these precious things with you anymore. There’s a huge hole in my heart & it will always be there while we are apart. I hold dear & cherish all the wonderful memories that we made together. The only things that give me comfort is knowing you are with the Lord, no more sickness or pain & you have become my guardian angel.
    I pledge to always help care for & watch over your whole family & be there whenever they need me. We were all very blessed to have had you as an important part of our lives. Rest in peace and we shall meet again. All our love!!
    Christy & The Martin Family

  3. May God Grant Eternal Memory and Blessed Repose to his beloved servant Julie. May Our Lord Jesus Christ wrap His loving arms around each and every member of the family and comfort them. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

  4. I will always remember my cousin Julie’s beautiful smile and how it lit up her face.
