His family states, "though we were only blessed with Julian for such a short time, he has touched everyone's life and brought so much happiness, and we cherish and are grateful for having him. Whether you called him June, bug(gers), juju, or nunu (auntie), he came running on his tiptoes with arms held high waiting to be scooped up. Julian is the light that fuels the sun and the glow that lights the moon. He was our everything."

A donation account has been set up at Alaska USA Federal Credit Union for Julian.
