(my cousin Cammy, Skyler[my other cousins daughter] and my other cousin, Courtney.
Recently our family lost a dear wife, mother, grandmother, aunt and daughter-Julie was married to my second cousin who I call Uncle Alan....they had a blended family and their home was always open to those in need. She was kind and loving, warm and open-but most of all she loved the Lord and exhibited that love by never turning those in need away. She had a way of seeing the best in people and was always willing to look past any shortcomings and welcomed everyone into their home with open arms. Her memorial was a testament to the warmth and love she showered on everyone she loved....we gathered as a family to remember her and shower Uncle Alan with our love and support.
