I was terribly shocked to learn of Julie's death. I often needed to call upon Julie's expertise regarding laboratory issues and always found a helpful, kind, and understanding voice. She is and will continue to be missed by those around her. I regret that I was not able to attend her memorial service as I was at a meeting out of the country. My sympathies and prayers are sent to her family. Sincerely, Suzanne Johnson

For Julieaas Memorial Note Oh! Julie! Julie! Julie! Why did you have to leave us so sadly? Why did you have to go that soon without saying a good-bye to us? ------------------------------------------------- Well, Julie, it was about 27 years ago when you visited Cornell laboratory in the heart of winter in Ithaca. You were so young and California lab was so young too. Then, I saw the burning desire in your deep young eyes you like to make California lab better than Cornell laboratory As a dedicated member, you and your team made the California lab as the premiere veterinary institute in the country now. It will flourish further with the legacy you left behind. As a valuable AAVLD member, you made a great contribution in the area of laboratory safety and security. Julie, you are the woman with value, high standard and class, you are the colleague with dignity, trust and class, and you are the friend with loyalty, love and class. My Ann and I will keep our lovely memories of California experience with you deep in our heart, foothillaas winery tour, redwoods park camping, that smelly garlic town Gilroy trip for my healthy food, that wonderful Dungeness crab feast at Alexaas and so many a We trust and pray that wonderful angels have guided your road to the heaven and The God welcomes you with open arms. We will miss you so much, Julie, and we love you. God bless you, so long until we meet again!!! Ann and Sang from Florida, and Cornell Colleagues.

Julie was truly a great asset to the veterinary diagnostic laboratory from its onset in 1985. She was a most joyful and helpful member of the staff during my employment at CVDLS. My prayers and condolences are expressed to her family. We always enjoyed meeting her on the greenbelt walking with her dog.
