Thank you for the nice things you have said about Julie. I take your thoughts and prayers to heart. I read each reply and while thinking of the many past interactions I've had with many of you, it warmed me. I also truly appreciate the folks I have never talked to that offer a kind word.
Thanks also for telling me about your similar experiences. Tonight I truly don't know how to get through this, but it helps a lot to know others like me have..

What hurts is that we were starting "Our next adventure" as she called it. And she was taken before we really could enjoy it.
Thanks again.

Very sorry to hear about Julie.

Great pictures and memories you shared in her honour. Cherish those memories and I too believe Julie would want you in the new shop spending time with another passion, the Pontiac hobby.

Take care and enjoy time with your family.

I agree, and add my condolences. You two had an amazing life and you still have all the wonderful memories. Lost my mom last month and am dealing with loss as well. Hang in there.

Thanks again.

James, you have my heartfelt condolences. As hard as it might be, I think you should take great comfort knowing that your wife was enjoying the next adventure. She was able to see her grandchildren come down that hillside to visit! I'm sure that was priceless in her heart. She was able to see you attain the shop that she wanted for you. And probably hundreds of other small events brought her joy that you might not realize.

You did what you could to make her dreams came true. That is huge. The rest is up to God.

James, Very sorry to hear of your wife's passing, (after 10 years of a noble fight).
She obviously was a very strong person. You picked a good one and many years and memories were shared with her.
