  2. I am deeply grateful for the memories our families shared over the years. I pray for the family in the days and years ahead that the love that she showed and the fond memories will live on in their minds and hearts.

  3. I am sorry to hear about my Aunt Julia.
    I always enjoyed visiting with my Uncle Bobby and Aunt Julia.
    Julia was always such a good host and a great cook.
    She was one of the nicest and kindest you could ever know.

  4. I came to know Mrs. Blahnik thru marriage to her lovely daughter and my wife Ttricia. Since the day we met, She made her home mine – with sweetness and kindness. She was like a second mother to me and she always made sure I was well fed during our regular Saturday night dinners. We will strive to celebrate her life, remembering her funny ways and not dwell on the sadness that her departure brings us. My wife and I suffered so during her illness, especially towards the end of her journey – being so helpless. Her absence will certainly be felt forever. Mama Blahnik, I know you are in a better place and hope you know how much you are loved and how deeply you will me missed. Tricia and my are heart broken. We love you forever. Manny
