Dear Family, I was so sorry to hear about the passing of your loss. Julius was a very adventurous, comical, thoughtful and wonderful person. I will never forget all the wonderful times and laughs we had together. I am so glad I had the opportunity to come and spend the day with Julius as I enjoyed every second of it. He was defiantly a one of a kind person and I hold many memories in my heart of him always and he will be missed by all. My deepest sympathies are with you and your family. All my love, Greg

I'll be seeing you in all the old familiar places that this heart of mine embraces, all day through.In that small café--the park across the way--the children's carousel--the chestnut tree--the wishing wellI'll be seeing you in every lovely summer's day--in everything that's light and gay--I'll find you in the morning sun--and when the night is new--I'll be looking at the at the moon--but I'll be seeing you.Please rest in peace my wonderful friend. Jules, you will always be my best buddy.
