Not sure what to say?

My family and Julias family were very close many years ago. Her father Felix worked with my dad Hank. They were good friends & our families became close like cousins. We were very saddened when her dad passed away & now saddened to hear of Julia's passing. Although we lost touch over the years myself & my family remember the good times we had growing up as kids. Julie was an absolute sweetheart with a beautiful smile. May she be at peace. Our deepest sympathies to the Spataro...

My deepest condolences to the entire family. I have had the honor to work for the family business and felt like myself was a part of the family. May Julie rest in eternal peace.

Julie fought a courageous battle but not alone. She was always surrounded by her loving family .I will always remember Julie’s love for makeup, clothes and frogs. But most of all she loved Genos cheesesteaks from Philadelphia. Julie always made you laugh ,loved her silliness. Julie, I hope there’s a casino up in heaven and you hit that jackpot. I will miss your trips to Wildwood but I really believe your with your Dad and my Mom. Rest In Peace Sweet Julie xoxo

Our deepest condolences to you, Dawn, & your family. Know that Sammy & I are praying for peace & strength, from God, for all of you & knowing that she's free from ALL pain❤.. As the days and weeks pass, and as you return to life's routine, may you continue to feel comforted by the love and support of family and friends.

Our heartfelt sympathies to you and your entire family. May Julie eternally Rest In Peace.

Aunt Julie, you were so many things to so many people. A daughter, a niece, a sister, a cousin, a wife, a mother, a grandmother (to the most beautiful little boy, I might add) and an aunt. But beyond those things you were so much more. Your smile and joy lit up whenever family was around. You were always “so happy to see you” and would always make sure we knew that “it made my day!” when we came to visit. You were always so interested in what all the kids were doing and always so proud of...

I’ll remember you kind smile, warm heart and great laugh. May the road rise up to meet you, may the wind be ever at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face and the rain fall softly on your fields. And until we meet again, May God hold you in the hollow of his hand.

To My Loving Sister, Anyone who had the opportunity to be with you in your final months witnessed the courage and dignity you displayed in your battle. I don't think I mentioned to you, but Hailey was asked to write about a hero in class two weeks ago, and she wrote a beautiful piece about you. When I heard that your idol, Eddie Van Halen died on 10/7, I was thinking, "Jul, you don't want to be late for this party." The love and laughs you brought to the family was extraordinary-...
