Not sure what to say?

Juliann was a mentor and friend. She saw something in me that I did not see in myself. Receiving the 1993 CDS Student Achievement Award for best exemplifying the mix of character, academic and clinical attributes remains a point of pride in my career. I will miss her dearly.

Psalm 90:10 says that the days of our years are 70 years, And if because of special mightiness they are 80 years.
May the memories of the wonderful times you shared together bring a smile and joy in your heart.

I will always treasure the long conversations and good food we shared during my annual visits to Hilton Head with my daughter, Hillary Baltimore. Juliann generously offered her insights and well-informed comments on the world scene, national politics and favorite books punctuated by her delightful sense of humor. I join a host of club members, colleauges, students and friends who cherish her memory.

Today, we put to rest someone responsible for who I am today. When I was 18 years old, she saw something in me that I had the makings of becoming an excellent dentist. The best way we can honor our mentors is to pay it forward. May the Lord illuminate her soul. Thank you, Dr. Bluitt, your life has been an example to us all.

So sad that we won't see Juliann at the Art Academy and symphony. Enjoyed knowing her these last few years. Condolences to her family.

Dr Bluitt was The First African American Female Dentist that I met. I read about her in the Ebony Magazine in 1973-74. I was an undergraduate student at the time, Pre Dental . I wrote Dr Bluitt and introduced myself after reading of her. She invited me to lunch at the Carriage House in Chicago and Mentored me all the way! She became a great Colleague and Golf Partner!
Her Lovely Spirit will Shine on the Dental Community for ever!

May Juliann rest in peace with her Lord. She was a shining light to all who knew her. It was an honor to be a Book Club member with her. Comfort is extended to all of her family. Know that your mother and grandmother was well-loved.

My sincere condolences to your family for the loss of your love one. May the God of comfort be with you during this sad occasion and may his loving words at John 6:40 console your heart.
