So shocked to see this! Our Lord must of wanted her to go HOME for Jesus Birthday. In the Blink of an eye (Heaven's Time) you will be reunited again. I retired nine years ago and I worked in Medical Records (HIM) at CCMH. Your mom/wife was always so positive to work with for Billing. She never got upset with me when I didn't understand something with the Billing for the patient. She was a very kind person. May our Lord hold you close at this time and in the years ahead without such a special person in your life which you can see. She will always be with you! By your side, day by day.

To Roger and family,
It is times like this that I wish the miles between us was shorter in distance. I will forever remember Julie as one who always offered a hug, smile and a warm greeting. Even when my visits were few and far apart we were always able to enjoy the moments we had. She loved each of you dearly and was very proud of each of her boys. Her face would light up when she spoke of her family. I know that she is now with the Lord, May you draw near to Him and may He comfort you with His love and peace today and always.
In His Love,
John and Debbie Beeson
