April 5, 2002—Happy birthday, Julian! A bunch of your family joined for dinner this evening to celebrate your birthday. We all miss you, dear friend!
Julian would have been eighty-five years old on April 5, 2002.
The above picture was taken on Julian and Louise’s fiftieth wedding anniversary. August 14, 2001, would have been their fifty-fifth wedding anniversary. Julian and Louise are two of the finest folks you could ever meet. Julian’s favorite way to spend an afternoon was snoozing on his back porch. Louise enjoys the afternoon soaps, Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, Alan Jackson, and occasional shopping with her daughters and granddaughters.
Julian’s grandson Curry wrote a poem and read it at Julian’s
funeral. It appears in its entirety below. (Or you may wish to download
a printer-friendly version
of Curry’s poem. The printer-friendly version requires the
Acrobat Reader, which you probably already have.)
