  5. I’m so saddened to hear of Julie’s passing. I met Julie Evans while working at Pathways. She gave me a chance. She gave me a job that turned out to be one of my greatest experiences. I loved chatting and always laughing with her!!! She always had something funny to make me laugh, she also always had words of encouragement when I struggled in my personal life. I learnt a lot from her. I learnt to take a chance even when I’m afraid, I found that facing fear brings strength. Trying hard brings rewards. I learnt that I had more to offer than I believed because julie believed in me. These are a few of the things I will never forget and am forever grateful for. Much love & gratitude for you Julie☮

  6. So grateful and thankful that you gave me my first job in the field of chemical dependency! I wouldn’t be where I am today without that first step. Rest In Peace Julie
