Oh, Julia. You made me think of lunches differently - I always loved when you would post about your cute lunch.

To reiterate...this dark world has lost one of it's brightest lights it's ever known.

Thank you for the bloody mary at IT.

You will truly be missed by this community and the Phish community.

Brian, celebrating her life in the church of Phish is exactly what she would have wanted you to do. She was a true phan, through and through. May I make a suggestion to take her tickets and give them as miracles to somebody looking for one that makes you smile for some reason, or who you see do an act of kindness? I believe if she had extra tickets and no friend to give them to that she would in fact give out miracles. In fact, she was a miracle to both the Vibes and Phish communities.

This wook will surely do a dance to a Phish song in her honour.

I am so very sorry for your loss...her light shines on, brother. So, so very sad for you and all who loved her. I sure did.

Much :heart: to all of you. Rest in peace, sweet Julia!

upon seeing this - i couldnt beleive my eyes - i am deeply saddened. I havent been on the boards for a while.. maybe lurking here and there.. but she ALWAYS always had something super witty to post - she truly was an original being. My heart goes out to all of you good people whose lives shes touched - I never knew her.. but i shed tears for her and her family. I am truly sorry for your loss...

We had a few moments of rememberance, sort of a mini-wake last night at Zach Deputy, who very kindly said a few words to the room about Julia. I have the set if anyone wants to tell me a quick way to get it on the internets for downloading. Jamie, Terry and I shared some tears and some grief and were all a bit shell-shocked.

I would love a copy.
You can probably upload it to megaupload or sendspace and send anyone who wants a copy the link to download it themselves.

Or if you want to send me a copy, I'll be happy to do the uploading and send out myself! :grin:

Thanks, Julius!!

I am sitting here at work, and had this strong urge to log on to the boards, was thinking of Julia and only to find out she is being laid to rest today.

I am deeply saddened by this loss and my heart goes out to her family, brian and all that knew her.

Her sense of humour, wit and outlook on life will be missed. She definitely brought so many laugh out loud moments to my life, where my coworkers were left wondering what I was snickering at.

the world is shedding many tears for you!

I'm actually looking for tickets to 12/30, but when I find them, (and I have tickets to 1/1/11), I'll write on my hand, RIP Julia. I only faintly know her threw her posts, but this will be a way of me dedicating my first Phish shows to someone that appears to be a great phan.



God bless you Brian.

May the music blow you safely home <3

They say there's a heaven for those who will wait
Some say it's better but I say it ain't
I'd rather laugh with the sinners than cry with the saints
the sinners are much more fun...

Julia's passing is a real lesson to me..seeing her thread about telling the people you love, that you love them really brings it home for me. I am so sorry for everyone's loss. We should all try to express a little extra love, in the name of Julia, with the people we love and care for.

ahhh diddy, she was one of my favorites here as well.

i've been holed up all week at a beachfront villa in barbados reading john irving's latest novel. such an odd coincidence as i borrowed this book the week before she died. he was one of julia's favorite writers. the story revolves around a man's search for his biological father. the similarity between julia's posts and irving's writing style is uncanny, not to mention the plot parallels.

i've been thinking about her all week.

As just a casual acquaintance (I only got to hang out with her a handful of times) - I can't even imagine what her loved ones are going thru right now.<o:p></o:p>

speaking of julia's love of reading... i will never forget the first time kev and i hung out at her place in toronto. i was drinking a glass of red wine and perusing her bookshelves and was struck by the fact that it was almost like looking at my own, we had so many favourites in common. we chatted about books we love. ah, julia. i miss you. :heart:

So sad, I don't really know what else to say, life is so precious and fleeting, peace and love to all who feel a vacancy in their lives from her passing, let us hold one another close. :heart:
