    Nice tribute, Samm, of one who obviously deserved it.

    She’s so right that you don’t need to be any less friendly to be competitive. I think of one example, sorry not pool, that stands out for me. In a football game, you sometimes see a fierce tackle, and then the defender helps the ball carrier up off the turf.

    This to me is the epitome of sportsmanship. Your friend obviously had it in spades. She’ll be missed; thanks for sharing.

    Sam, nice Tribute to Julie. I will miss her, she was a very nice and kind person. I met her back in ’06 when she played in AZ Women’s tourny held at On The Snap Billiards. She was very kind and helpful to everyone in the tournament. Thanks for sharing your thoughts of a great friend.

    Wonderful article Samm… I don’t believe I ever had the pleasure of knowing or competing against Julie. She sounds like an amazing person… So very sad to lose someone like that. : ( My thoughts are with her family…

    I am glad to call Julie a friend from years ago in Winnipeg in High School. Many times she made me look like I had never held a cue before, this was in the mid-eighties at the Winnipeg Cue Club. Her happy and nice personality you describe were just the same as a teenager. Julie has alot of friends up north remembering her as a truly beautiful person. It’s nice to know that never changed.

    Way to go Samm, well said. Now if only the pool playing population would listen. Julie was a great person and a fierce competitor, I too had the pleasure of playin her and being on the receiving end of her wrath. She will be missed!

    What a wonderful article, and you are right; Julie never knew a stranger. I also want everyone to know that her spirit was amazing, and she said things to me in my time of need that changed my life forever.for the better, I might add. The family is in my thoughts and prayers through these hard times.
