  1. To my little friend – one of my first and best friends, Julie Ann Karhu: the first thing that comes to my mind when I think about you is laughter – from our early years together in the first grade until the present, you gave me joy and happiness through your sense of humor… I could and would do anything to hear you laugh, which would make me laugh too. Remember what a pair we were in grade school? The teachers quickly learned to never put us together in class, but they could never stop us from glancing at each other from across the room and giving each other those unspoken signals that only we knew to be funny. It was a good thing though(the teachers keeping us apart) as we would probably not have learned anything but how to be comedians! We were unstoppable in our quest for fun and laughter! But, as life would have it, we drifted apart only to meet again so that we could both say “Good-bye” and “I love you” one last time – I will cherish those last words until we meet again, which is made possible through our belief in Jesus Christ as our personal savior. Now, Julie, you are with our Lord, and I am sure that you are making those who went before you laugh again with your beautiful and sweet ways. So long my friend – I will see you again and we will live in love and peace knowing that we will be eternally together and that nothing will separate us again – not even Mr. Smith (If he’s there!) LOL…

  2. I pray the Lord’s comfort at this time for Julie’s family and friends. No words can comfort but only to know that you do not grieve alone.
