Sherry (John's friend), December 6, 2021 Dear Dave and Family, Daniel and I were so very sorry to hear that Julie passed away. God was showing off when he created her as never a kinder soul would you find in all the world. We really enjoyed our limited time together at First Dallas with you and Julie as our class directors. While I am certain of her incredible heavenly welcome and removal of all pain, discomfort, and exhaustion, I know that those who remain on this earth can find it difficult to know how to begin that journey of understanding and healing. We pray that as you take those first steps you don’t rush along the way but allow God to guide and direct you in the way in which He would have you go. Much love, Daniel and Aimee Dunnam Daniel & Aimee Dunnam, December 5, 2021 Julie will be greatly missed. Love and prayers for Dave and your family until that joyous day when you see her again.
