Your fighting spirit and joy for life, fun and music, will never be forgotten. xxx


To someone who never ever wanted to give up life. Missing you hugely. x


Julia: we met through music, and sang with each other hundreds of times in different choirs. Your remarkable musicality was so much admired and valued. I feel sure will always be music, wherever you are.


To my dearest little sister whose last days on this earth were made sweeter thanks to the help of the wonderful carers at Farleigh.

Mr & Mrs Juan Pablo and Philippa King Rojo

To Julia’s family I am so sorry for your loss. Julia was an amazing person. I feel so privileged to have known and worked with her for so many years. Her stoicism and determination to live life well always and most particularly during her illness was inspirational. I will miss her kindness, razor sharp intellect and fairness. A very special lady who will be greatly missed.
