i remember growing up; the Peters family and Jackson families would come together and help our fathers clean the Tribal Center, we had some fun while doing it and sometimes became very comical. Julius will surely be missed for his humor and seriousness. He left a beautiful legacy in his family and friends, we shall all mourn this great man and his accomplishments.
