    It is 10/11/13 and I just found out on the Internet that my friend Julian passed away in July. I'm very sad and in shock! I live in Oregon. I met Julian in 1988 and we made music together in his studio. I wrote lyrics and melodies to some of his music. We worked well together and I came to love him very much. One day Jilian disappeared from my life. He moved, and I didn't know where. I couldn't find him. 20 years passed and on a whim I typed his name on people search on the Internet and his name and phone number came up. I dialed the number thinking it can't be him, but the minute I heard his sweet voice, I knew it was my Julian! I traveled from Oregon to see him and we were reunited at last! We reminisced, and caught up on each other's lives. I returned home to Oregon, we kept in touch, but then I stopped hearing from him. Julian has touched my heart and made an impact in my life that I will always carry with me forever. I will always love you Julian! Your dear one, Patricia Stinson
