Will never forget her laugh or that infectious grin of hers, no matter what -she smiled and kept on. I still can not believe it. Jim and Janet you have my deepest sympathy, Konner and Cooper-your mother loved you and adored you but most importantly she was proud of the young men you were becoming. I have missed Julie ever since she left the blood center. Her laugh and smile made the world a better place. A bright light gone too soon. Love and Prayer to each of you.

Dear Hagan Family, my family sends our deepest sympathies. I have so many memories with Julie. I will never forget when we connected in middle school putting together we were related. It kicked off years of friendship, sleepovers, and fun. I recently came across pictures of the surprise birthday party themed nerds we threw at my house for her. She has always held an extra special place in my heart and will always. Love, prayers, and hugs to you all.
Joyce Yates sends her love as well.
