Dear aunt Mary, Dear Oz family, there are moments of relief after his sufferings, but the moments of grief are to real.
We found and find ourselves really fortunate to have you as our Australian family. Our plan was to visit one more time this coming christmas, even bring my parents and do the famous Gulasch together. And now, we have to express our sincere sympathies. Julius will always stay funny and lively in our memories but he will be missed by all the Austrian family, especially us, I’m so grateful we made it 2020 again and MiLu could meet you again together. Precious memories forever. We want to share with you that today you will remain in our prayers when you say goodbye. Here we will wait for him to come back and lay down to his beloved and dearly missed family.
It’s not his roots here only what connected us. I still remember I started occasionally calling you and this was so important for me. A loving, funny uncle, grateful for updates and caring about all of us. He never forgot a detail, following up on everything. At that time, I had never thought that we would develop such a strong connection. Somehow it was given, there before hoawever switching German and English we both felt comfortable and were bubbly. Being a foreigner in another country was bonding too. It was Julius’ helping nature and affection that I still admire. He and you were family, distance didn’t matter and therefore, his absence now will be a distance too, no call can shorten this anymore.June 16, 2023
We need to tell us stories. Mila and Luca are still laughing about the day in Mornington. He almost couldn’t walk but was so concerned about the kids well-being that he run away from us in the deli shop, couldn’t find the kids (hiding on the trees) and wobbled down to the marina. Hallelujah, how dangerous this was. Let us always keep him alive in our memories and celebrate them when we are together to keep him a part of our lives forever.
If there is anything that we can do in these sad times then please let us know. We are going to miss uncle Joe a lot. Let’s stay close to keep the spirits alive. Thank you for everything dear aunt Mary and family, we know you look after each other, see you very soon…
With deepest sympathies
Bettina, Jann, Mila and Luca ❤️
