I worked with Julie at the telephone company from 1969 to 1981 in the engineering department. Julie was always warm, compassionate and always so happy. Gus and Barbara were all she would talk about when we would go to lunch or our short 15 minute break. So sorry that all these years have slipped by and we didnt keep in touch. Hearing of her passing has brought tears of great memories. My prayers go out to all of your family. God Bless, she was a very special person. Laura (Martinez) (Downey) Hall.
