I was just reading my Sunday Kenosha News and saw the obituary for your Mom, Diane, Pam and Cheryl.
My prayers to you and your families.
Even though it has been years since I have seen and of you, I do remember enjoyable visits with you.
I shall keep all of you in my prayers!🙏

Julie's family lived across the street from us growing up! Her girls and me and my sisters hung out together. She was always so kind to us! A few years back, I met up with Julie at Journey church....and we enjoyed 'catching up' again. She loved and always talked about her daughters and grand kids. My condolences go out to the family.....May God Bless you thru this difficult time. You are all in our thoughts/prayers!

I remember Julie when I was growing up in Zion, IL. She and her sisters spent summers there with their grandmother who lived down the street. Our families often did things together and they are a big part of wonderful memories for me and my family and will always be in my heart. Gail (Lee) Myers
