  7. I’ve known Julie and her family since we moved to Franklin in the 70’s. Her mom was my teacher and her brother was in my class. Julie was my little sisters friend but in the past 10 years I’ve gotten to know Julie. What I really appreciated about Julie was how no nonsense she was. It seems like these days people tell you what you want to hear or are just sort of fake. Not Julie Phrahl. She also had such wit and insight and talking to her was always interesting and fun. Julie was a thoughtful and interesting person who was a big part of Franklin and Morgan. She also just absolutely adored her niece and nephew as well as her sister-in-law. She was a family first person and will be missed. RIP

  8. Dear Family,

    My heartfelt condolences go out to you for your loss. Many of us can relate to what it feels like to be touched by death. What has helped my family to cope were scriptures such as John 5:28,29; Revelation 21:3,4; 1Peter 5:6,7. Reading and thinking on these scriptures can help to soothe your pain and bring you comfort and strength in the weeks and months to come. Knowing that our loving Heavenly Father understands and cares about what you’re going through can be a real source of strength. I pray you will find solace and hope in those scriptures. Take good care.

Share Your Condolences
