I'll love you and miss you forever, and a day. You are the best thing to ever come into my life. You gave me love, support and understanding and I would give my life for you if I could,
Goodbye my sweet angle.

I am sorry so sorry to hear of Julia's passing. I enjoyed her enthusiasm for kayaking and skill development both on Georgian Bay and in our pool training sessions. This summer Julia shared with me one of her favorite places to kayak, Duffins Creek, a truly magical place. I will think of her every time I paddle there. I admired Julia's positivity and courage as she battled cancer over the years. I am sending my condolences to her family and friends.

Julia taught piano to our eldest son, at a time when he wasn’t able to sit or focus well. She was endlessly patient with him and we have very fond memories of him at both his lessons and at the year end recital.

She and I stayed connected online and I enjoyed seeing her adventures kayaking and gardening.

She will be missed and I’m so sorry that she’s gone.
