I am so sorry for your loss. I worked with Julie at the Dunkirk office of Social Services for many years. I considered her a dear friend. As a group we had many good times and many laughs, along with all the hard work. I have thought of her often and had a chance to see her a few times at Walmart. I actually just came across pictures of the retirement party we gave in her honor. It was nice seeing those again and it brought back many fond memories. Rest in peace my friend. I am sending prayers and thoughts for the family. God Bless. Sincerely, Della (Frost) Ludemann.
