    I was saddened to hear of your loss. Julie was an outstanding 4-H member back in 1961 when I was the Home Extension Agent in Cuming County Nebraska. I will miss her yearly Christmas greetings and picture. She was an excellent seamstress and yes, very fashionable.

    Julie was such a special person. I got to know her and even her daughter through my store in Omaha. She was always a joy to spend time with. Deepest sympathy to her family. She will truly be missed.
