I had the please of working with Julia at Digital and with the Colorado Springs Black Catholics! She was a very loving and kind person. Always welcomed me and everyone with open arms. May your rest is heaven.

I had the pleasure of knowing and working with Julia at Digital. She was dedicated to her job and the Company (as most of us DECies were). She was honest in her dealings with all and very respected for her commitment to do the Right Thing. I offer my heartfelt condolences to all her family and friends.

Eternal Rest of your Soul Julia. I remember when you were a prayer warrior and I had to call you with our prayer requests. May you be at peace. Peace and comfort for your family and friends. Pauline Bustamante

Albert, many years ago we were students together in a theater class at UCCS - we weren't particularly close, really just classmates, but you have stayed prominent in my memory. I want to pass on my condolences on the loss of your mother. May God ease your grief as you mourn.
