Julia was a light in the world for everyone around her to see. She loved her family, her dog, and beanie babies (not necessarily in that order). We were told she would never laugh or recognize faces, but she proved that prediction wrong. She enjoyed visiting the aquarium in Philadelphia, where she watched the butterflies, sharks and hippos with her eyes wide open--not wanting to miss anything! She also enjoyed watching animated movies, and listening to or participating in any kind of music--especially her parents playing piano, trumpet, and handbells. She was loved, and she loved. She is missed every day.
