In my wildest dreams I never expected to find or run into any of Julie's old friends. I left the state not long after her mother took her and left me. I've only been back in SLC for the last 10 years. I spent most of her life out of state so never met any of her friends on my visits except for one, when I took her and Julie to Trolley Square for her birthday and turned them loose with a pocketful of quarters. I still have the goblet she bought me with her points. (all of the pieces anyway) I never imagined there was a site like Find A Grave and ran across it quite by accident. I'm not even sure how I found Julie's name on the site. When I did and saw the notes you've left for her I was greatly touched. I can't even begin to explain how that made me feel. That little girl was my heart and soul and knowing she had/has a friend like you warms my heart. I assume, by now you have found where her grave site is, and by the picture in her BIO you can see she does have a headstone. The other name on the headstone is a sister of mine that was born severely mentally and physically handicapped that Julie never met. Her body was donated to science and never had a place to rest so we had her name added to Julie's headstone in memorandum. If you ever have any questions, or anything you feel you have to say, feel free to send me a message and I'll be happy to tell you what I can.
Julie Roestenburg Thanks for being such a wonderful friend to my daughter. It's great knowing there are still people to loved and think of her to this day. I'm sorry I never got to know any of her friends.
