  1. I’ve been a friend of Julie’s for 59 years.
    That’s 59 years of births-First Communions-School picnics-
    Graduation’s and Grandchildren.
    Julie was the nicest person unless you messed with her Family, Julie was the original MAMMA BEAR.
    There will be millions of girls named Julie, but there will NEVER be another Julie Bruner!

  2. Ive considered the entire family my extended family since i was 15. Juie was loving caring and always helped others. My thoughts will forever hold the power of love for her. RIP God Bless

  3. The one and ONLY. Can’t believe you’re gone. We have so many memories and stories to cherish forever. It’s sure going to be hard to navigate life without you.
