Our beloved Julia Samuel departed from us to be with Her Father in Heaven on February 27, 2012. Julia Samuel believed with all her heart and mind that God loved her and every living creature. He is and was a very real force in her life and the lives of her dear ones. Her life was characterized by her fervent belief that God was in every experience. Whether beautiful or ugly, happy or sad, vibrant or dark, God was there with her. She loved to sing, play, and laugh with them. She was the shining light among them. Her courage and confidence inspired each person to have a little more faith in yourself because God gives you those strengths. In her short time on this earth, Julia showed us that God's light can shine through a little girl whose faith is genuine and sincere.
