Our family and Julian's friends are already
missing him greatly.
His memorial service will be held when the
pandemic subsides. This should allow more
people to attend. Face masks may still be advisable
to protect the elderly and vulnerable.
We might consider a "virtual" memorial service
depending on how slowly we may recover as a state.
You comments on this are certainly welcome
Check this website for time, date and further details.
May God bless you all!

I miss Julian. He was always smiling and ever so polite. Last summer Julian, dad, and I went on a walk up some stairs at a park. I think there were 100 flights of stairs. Many people stopped to comment on how amazing it was that Julian was so tenacious in getting to the very top. One woman even took a picture with him to try to persuade her friends to do this with her because if an 84 year old can do it, they should be able to. Julian is no walking those stairs pain free, and I am sure, faster than me.
