"We were in shock when we found out. We just spoke six days before and you seemed OK. Never thought we would loose you so quickly. We will treasure all the good times we spent together. Rest in peace Julie, no more pain. Love you for ever. Now you are with Bailey and your Mom. There's a lot more to say but all we do is mourn. Our deepest condolences to the entire family Mike and Dana from Ridgewood. "
