Memories Timeline


  1. God bless all of you who love her I know how hard it is to loose someone you love so dear. My prayers are with all of you. Julie and Lisa my daughter had many a fun time while they where growing up.God loves her I know he does. She is a beautiful child of his. Love from a Mother of a Dear friend of hers

  2. I had never had the opportunity to meet Julie but the buzz around Temecula is that she was a wonderful person and a Special Person to all the animals that she touched. I know she will be missed.

  3. I just learned of Julie’s passing today and I am heartbroken. I had been out of town and when I returned I tried several times to call the shop to no avail, so today I drove over there and learned the sad news. I have known Julie as a customer for about eight years, and truly enjoyed my interactions with her. She was a Master at her trade and my girls loved “Miss Julie.” She got a kick out of it when I told her that is how she is referred to around our house. The love and compassion she had for the dogs showed through every time we walked in the door. She greeted everyone with a smile. She will be greatly missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family. Love, Tyler (Piper & Stacie)

  4. Is this real, how did it happen so fast, why did I not know you better all the years you were friends with Lisa there is so many memories but I wish I had made more! I prayed so hard for you and felt so angry that God took you so soon and then yesterday during churh it just came over me and I understood I went to our prayer board I took the cardthat had your name on it and in the bottom corner where it said date answered.. I wrote Julie went home on 3/26/11 it all made sense God had said Julie job well done and he took you home. You will be missed see you in heaven.

  5. Love you all so much. Julie is such a special part of growing up on Finley to me. She is like a sister of my own. God Bless you all and now you have Ray and Ju-Ju taking care of you and the babies.

  6. Oh Julie, I am at such a loss for words, ya me. I love you and I will always miss you. You have been so much a part of my life for 30 years. I am so proud of you. I am so Thankful to have shared our lives as we did, so many memories silly and serious special and sweet. From our silly made up words in high school to the simple fact that I met my husband because of you. You were my maid of honor and not only did you take care of me on that day you have always been there. I will try to be brave and strong like you. I know I will cry at times and that you will understand. Now, you are healed. I love you Julie. Deepest sympathy to all of your family.

  7. Remembering Julie with a smile on our faces!! She has been the only groomer that our JJ has known since we brought him home almost 8 years ago!! Always a smile on her face and she lit up whenever she talked about her dogs and shows!! She will be greatly missed and we look forward to a reunion in heaven someday soon! With love from the Skeoch Family: Gordon, Cathy, Landon & Gavin

  8. Telling Julie good bye I know was very hard for all of you to do but such a beautiful good bye tell we see you again. No one could have done it better. God Bless all of you. Love Bonnie Walsh

  9. The very first time I met Julie, I went home to insist my Dad “marry her.” I was just a little girl, and it was a start of a new family and a great relashionship. Julie and I spent our summers shopping (our favorite store being TJ Max), hanging by the pool listening to James Taylor, getting in our moo moos for moo moo time, getting dondis in the morning, and soooo much more. Julie was an excellent cook, and taught me so much! She also taught me ALL I know about dogs and breeding. I remember going grocery shopping and not being able to resist the cookies we had just baught, so we would sit in the car and munch! It was always our little secret! Julie Kassien helped shape me into the woman I am today. When I think that there will be no more of these happy memories, it deeply saddens me. One thing is for certain….Julie lived! My heart goes out to her wonderful husband and great father David Kassien. We were a family, and will be again one day. God Bless.
