  • Julia was the true meaning of love, compassion, caring, empathy for others. I enjoyed my moments working with her at Christiana. She truly cared and helped so many. She was able to do her duties so well and still go out of her way to help others in need when at the time, there were no other place for those to turn. Things have changed and more resources are in place now but at that time, she was that resource and she made herself available. That was whom she was and I will always love her and remember her as selfless and lovely human being. I Love you my Julia. Mis condolencias a la familia!!
