Julie was an inspiration to everyone she came in contact with, especially her followers and book readers. She was serious about her work but had a dry sense of humor, was very witty, and found good in all people and situations. Julie had a deep love of cats and was an advocate for their care. Over the years, she fostered at least 500 kittens to ensure they found the best homes. In her memory, donations can be made to The Feline Fix, 6075 Parkway Drive, Commerce City, CO 80022.
