Condolence & Memory Journal

I loved Julie. I knew her since we were in kindergarten. Every time we got together, it was like we were 5 years old again and giggled all the time. I am glad she will not be in pain anymore but I will miss her every day. May she rest in peace. ❤

Dear Sam and Nino, I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Julie. Growing up on Arlington, she was one of my dear friends. Please know I'm sending my sincere sympathy to you and your family.

I wrote this the night before the funeral but never got to read it.
We will miss you, Dear Cousin Julie. We will miss your thoughtfulness and your warm greetings. We will miss your love and caring. We will miss coming over to your house for dinner and holidays. We will never forget you coming over to help when Francesca was really sick. We will never forget the many times you came to help my husband Lorenzo and his illness. We were grateful when you became Francesca's Confirmation Godmother and always asked about Carlo. We will never forget the dedication, love and respect you gave to your parents - Zio Lorenzo and Zia Rosetta. We will never forget your kindness. But God above had another plan for you and God said," Julie, it is time to come home for your work is done here on earth and to put your suffering to rest!" So as God embraces you into his heavenly Kingdom, we will all miss you, rest in eternal peace until we meet again !

On behalf of the Capuchin brothers I offer my deepest sympathies on the passing of Julia. It is truly humbling to receive memorial donations in honor of Julia's life. Please be assured of the brother's prayers for the entire Russo family during this great time of grief. May perpetual light shine upon Julia.
