Julia Royal was known for her fashion sense and love of florals. She was a warrior, bravely battling breast cancer with unwavering strength and determination. Throughout her journey, she inspired everyone around her with her resilience and positive spirit.
In the face of adversity, Julie continued to bloom like a beautiful flower, radiating love and joy to those fortunate enough to know her. Her unwavering spirit and grace touched the hearts of many, including her siblings, children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews and friends. Julia Royal left a lasting impact on all who crossed her path even in the days she was in dialysis, or chemotherapy. As we say our goodbyes to Julie, let us remember her for the incredible woman she was.
May her love for florals and her impeccable style forever remind us to embrace beauty and find strength in the face of challenges. Though she may no longer be with us, her spirit will continue to bloom in our hearts, reminding us to cherish every moment and live life to the fullest.
Goodbye, dear Momma, Sister, Aunt Julie, and our friend. May you rest in eternal peace, surrounded by the most beautiful flowers in heaven.
