Not only was she my sister she was also my bestfriend we would do everything together we never had a dull moment .She had the most laughable laugh and her smile was bright as the sun .I feel her presence all the time which gives me comfort.

Julie "J' and I met at D'Youville College in September of 2005 when she accepted a position as Asst Director of Graduate Admissions. I had been working in the same position since December of 2003. We had an instant connection with each other, loved working together and laughed every day. J had the kind of laugh that you could hear down the hall and when you heard it, it brought a smile to your face. J was an alum of DYC herself and wanted nothing more than to help students succeed in life. She touched many lives in her work but more importantly with her family and close friends. J made me part of her family from the first day we met and I am still close to her husband Louie, sister Ro, and niece Melissa. Sadly, Julie was diagnosed with vaginal cancer in December of 2015 and passed away in October of 2016. She wanted nothing more than to return to the job she loved and be here for her family and friends. Now I know why we met, why I became close to her family, we all need each other now and she would want us to be together. I miss her every day, I still work at DYouville, finding it harder and harder to stay, so many memories , so much has changed since her passing. J, you are my angel, I will honor you the rest of my life, I will never find another best friend like you, love and miss you always, T xo

An Angel in Disguise

Shared by Terry Herring on January 26, 2019

We worked next to Santa Maria Towers, an assisted living facility for the elderly and where J's aunt once lived. J shared a story with me one morning, it was winter time and J was leaving work the previous evening when she came across an elderly woman having a hard time walking in the snow. J asked where she was headed, the elderly woman said she needed to get to the drug store, down the street, to pick up her prescription. J helped the elderly woman into her car and drove her to the drugstore to get her prescription, then she took her back to Santa Maria Towers, made sure she was home safe and sound. Random Acts of Kindness, that was everyday for J! My response to her story, "J, your wings are coming out again!" She was truly an angel in disguise, such an incredible soul!

Niagara Falls 500

Shared by Diane Brancato on January 26, 2019

The summer I flew the kids in from Dallas, Julie was still receiving treatments but she felt pretty good! We all decided to take them to Niagara Falls for the day and drove three cars to get us all there PLUS two wheel chairs. Top of the hill, Julie and her mother RACE to the bottom in their chairs! Julie laughed ALL the way down and won the race! We had the best time all together that day and we still laugh when we talk about it! And Julie laughs with us still! Love you,  my beautiful sister!
