Hello my friends,

On Wednesday, March 21, my sister-in- law was airlifted to St. Mary's Hospital in Grand Junction where she was admitted with hepato-renal syndrome. Alas, it was irreversible. She died on March 30 at a hospice in Grand Junction. Her brother Jamie and his daughter Jackie were with her.

Julie married my brother Greg on October 12, 1985. He died in a mountain climbing accident on July 26,1986. There is so much more I would like to share with you about Julie's life - and will. I learned yesterday that the memorial will be on April 5th and so hasten to send this email.
