Sad news from Southern California

I received sad news this morning. CA Blackjack (Al Dyson) called to ask me to let this part of his family know that his wife Julie lost her battle with Lung cancer last night. He said she put up a valiant fight but was just not able to beat it. He said Julie’s kids from a previous marriage are there with him to help him get through this tough time.

This news just breaks our hearts. We were with Al and Julie when they first announced a spot had been found on Julie's lung. I'm sad to say that we let our busy life get in the way of keeping in contact and providing support.

ALWAYS keep your family and friends in front of all those things that we think are so important in our everyday lives. Take time to reach out - stop in to say hello. We never know when our time is up.

We know Al must be devastated losing the love of his life. Our heartfelt love is being sent in thoughts and prayers. Please keep us posted of any services that are being planned.

ahhh, this breaks my heart. We are so glad that we got to see them earlier this year and our lives have most definitely been blessed by having both Al and Julie in it. Such a great couple but such a short time together. She was wonderful and such a joy. We will miss her dearly. Now our prayers go out to Al, with all that our hearts can muster

We are so very sad to hear this news. Having met Julie and Al for the first time in 2013 at the Capes to Falls Wanderlust Run in Washington, we always looked forward to meeting up with them at all of the events since. Julie was always quick to give a hug which made you feel special. Our hearts go out to Al and Julie's family. God Speed beautiful lady.

I am sorry that I have never met Al or Julie but SSR Family is ALL family and I can't express my sadness and thoughts any better than Mike.

So sorry to hear this news. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Al and the family. We have been lucky enough to know Julie right from the start when she came into Al's life bring him so much happiness and love. He brought her into the SSR family where she brought so much joy to us all. This will really hit Patsy hard since they were both fighting cancer together and were pulling for each other. I have such a heavy heart right now. Al if we can be of any help please just let us know. We are here for you.

Thanks, Dwight, for letting us know of Julie’s passing.

We are grateful to have had the pleasure of meeting and calling Al and Julie our friends. They were such a fun loving couple. Nicolette fondly remembers their ‘matching’ t-shirts.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Al and Julie’s Family.

I am heartbroken We were there also when Al first brought Julie to the SSR family. He was so happy and she was this loveable happy lady that was his Love of his Life,

I am sorry to say that I too let life get in the way and did not keep in touch. I thought of her often.
Al if you need anything please call.

Love and Prayers are with you and all of the family. RIP JULIE WE WILL LOVE AND MISS YOU ALWAYS !!

This is a sad day for me. I met Al and Julie the day they told the SSR family they were engaged. She was so excited. He sat and just smiled. And smiled and smiled. That day Al and I talked about dams and bridges and water systems and other things people in civil engineering talk about. Julie and I talked about how they met and all their coming plans. As so often happens in this group we became friends within hours. Al, my thoughts are with you. I will miss my friend.
