    My father, Jules Fine, was a 1st cousin to Sheila and Juju (whom he claimed was named for him–he was much older) and Joe and Thelma were his favorite relatives. Though we lived in Hawaii (and I still do) I have fond memories of spending time with them all.

    As adults we have seen each other about two times. Both visits were a lot of fun, and I would have liked to know her better, but I do know she was a wonderful person with lots of people who loved her. My condolences to all who were close to her, and especially to her family.

    Aloha from Hawaii.

    Julia was such a beautiful person and a wonderful friend. Although I only knew her for about 25 years, she made a lasting impression on my heart. I will always remember her with love. Her humor, intelligence, grace and kindness will be with me always. I am so grateful to have had her in my life.

    I met Julia in our apartment building in 1997 when I moved to Park Slope from Hawaii to be near my daughter when she gave birth to my first granddaughter. Julia and I became such dear, dear friends throughout the years and we frequently visited each other when I moved from Park Slope to Yardley, PA to follow my family. Coincidentally, we later worked in the same building at 100 Varick Street until we both retired from our full-time jobs in 2009. During those years we had such fun times meeting for lunch or after work. Julia knew all of my family well and she was such a loving and supportive friend. My life was enriched with her knowledge of film, books and politics. In fact, we could talk about anything! It was so easy to "catch up" whenever we could meet for a movie or dinner. I shall miss Julia's loving and kind friendship immensely. She was a wonderful person and I will always have a special place in my heart just for her.

    Quite by accident I learned of the death of Julia or Juju as she was always known to me. We grew up together in "the Country," in Peekskill NY, and became winter as well as summer friends.Unfortunately in adulthood we drifted apart, and saw each other only on rare occasions, something I deeply regret. We enjoyed so many special times together, almost like family. She was a wonderful friend as well as an extremely gifted artist. Her painting hangs in my house and brings a smile to my face when I Iook at it. My deepest condolences to Sheila and the rest of her family.
