Best friend Julie

My very best friend is Julie. Her nickname is Jewels - or also Hoolietta. I love her to pieces. She is so good. She's a great mom. She's a college grad. I really love her a lot. I miss her now that she moved to back to Fresno. I'm also really sad because Julie lost her mom last week, it all happened so fast. I love Julie and her family, and I've spent a lot of time thinking, praying, and crying for them. I hate being far away. I wish I could be there with Julie to help her and give her a hug.
Shelly Catton was my favorite mom. She was always happy, she was always so nice, and I remember her voice - she was always happy to see me "Hey Brittney!"Julie's mom always let us make anything we wanted in the kitchen - especially CCC's! (Chocolate Chip Cookies) The Cattons were the first family to introduce me to the wonderful world of Nutella. She put up with us doing weird Brittney/Julie stuff like making up dancing into wee hours of the morning. I always felt at home with them.

I enjoyed being around her. She was definitely a great example of Christ. She raised 3 awesome kids, and she won't be forgotten. I'm sad that she left, but I'm happy that she lived a great life and that she is in a better place free from pain.
