I grew up across the street from Gil and Julia. My mom and dad where friends. I remember that she was a wonderful cook and had the sweetest laugh. Lisa
I will miss you grandma!
I'm sorry that I couldn't make the memorial service for Julia; however, am sending my deepest sympathy to Julia's family. I have many fond memories of both Julia and Gil (got to know them from my dad, Fred Crossfield). She was a wonderful woman...and I adored both Julia and Gil (incl Gil's brother and his wife who lived up the street from us). You will all be in my thoughts and prayers.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Glen & Ann, Alice, and Mary and David and the rest of the family. Julia touched all who she came in contact with - Thank you for touching our lives.
