Dear Marge and family...Our condolences on your loss. Julius was a great guy, always fun to be around. Our prayers for your peace and comfort, and for the peaceful repose of Julius\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s soul. One of us will try to make the reception or funeral, but we both have a serious respiratory infection, and probably should not be in contact with people. But you are in our love and prayers, as is Julius in loving memory...Gail and Ev
