A smile remembered

It's coming up on the anniversary of Julie's passing. Julie was a woman I met through my work at TWC. She found out she had recurrent breast cancer not long after I started working at the agency. I can vividly remember everyone sitting in the office waiting as she got the news. She put on such a brave face and of course tried to make a joke about losing her hair. While the time I knew her was brief, she made an impact on my life.

She loved life and had this beautiful smile. She knew how to have fun. This was a woman who had experienced immense heartache in her life, but you would never know it by looking at her. There was a depth of wisdom in her eyes and a kindness that just made you want to share your sorrows. She was always willing to lend a hand. The love for her family was easily viewable as she spoke of them.

It's been almost a year since she left her place on earth, but she is not forgotten.

Julie, you are missed.
