I am so very sorry for your loss of Julie, your wonderful wife, mother, sister, daughter, grandmother. Whatever her role, she gave her all and best to everyone. She was always so good to all of us at school I was so happy for her patience, caring and skill when she worked with my students.I also very much enjoyed teaching some of her own children and having her tremendous support as a parent. She was a lovey bright spot in my day and will be missed by so many! May God bless and sustain all of you in your sorrow. Sincerely, Rita Meagher

I pray the Lord comforts the emptiness you may feel with Julie gone. I road the bus with all the kids. I've run into a few of you over the years. I had a brother, David Painter who I lost last Nov. I know what it's like to lose a sibling. Draw close to each other. Remember the good times. Julie was always so sweet whenever I ran into her. I know she will be greatly missed. God bless you all.
