Julian's favorite color was yellow. The family requests that everyone wear yellow to the service instead of somber colors.
Juju, you fought so hard to stay with us. From March 2007 until Jan. 19, 2008, you endured CAT scans, MRIs, brain surgery, IVs, needles, an access port in your chest, 35 days of radiation, a feeding tube in your nose and a G-button in your tummy.
Then endless pokes and tests, and an evil thing called medulloblastoma, that, despite everything we did, attacked your body.
You told us it was a mouse that put that golf ball in your head.
It stole your third and fourth years and made your legs wobble and made it so you couldn't walk, sit, use your arms, hug us back, feed yourself, and, finally, even breathe, but you are our hero because it never took your smile or spirit, and never took your fight and will to stay here with us.
We love you so much and we will see you again in heaven. You have inspired and changed so many lives with your wisdom and wit, your love and your charm. We had you with us for almost five years and we will remember you every day and miss you with all our heart. We will have memories of our time with you here on earth, you being called "little dude," proclaiming this is Julian's World, flooding the house, making monster faces, telling nurses how to give chemo, playing with Kiley and Maya, our Make-A-Wish trip, meeting other "tumor kids" and, most of all, how much fun you had with your brothers.
You will be loved in heaven, with no more medicine, pokes or tubes. There will be no pain or cancer and we will be there with you some day to love you and hug you again. We will be OK, but will miss you. Mama, Daddy, Sam, Alex and William.
Survivors: Julian's family, Kenneth and Myriam Avery; brothers, Samuel, Alexandre and William Avery; grandparents, Jean and Marie Brocard of Dreux, France, Robert and Judy Avery of Fort Worth; godparents, Todd and Teresa Anderson and their children, Shanteill, Ethan and Oakley; godparents, Ken and Karen Harrigan and their children, Courtney and Madison.
