Photograph of Julianne Frances Kelly

Julianne Frances Kelly, born June 27, 1968, was returning home to Dedham, Massachusetts to spend Christmas with her mother, Rita, and two sisters, Mary Ellen and Janice. Her father, Thomas, had died in 1982. Pursuing a double major in political science and public relations, Julianne was a junior in the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University.

Julianne was a prolific writer. This fragment of her poetry comes from one of her journals:


We are like the night snow that dances through the silvery

orb of streetlight then is lost

Think of me as night snow that, in turn, danced through the silvery orb of the

streetlight then was lost in soft darkness.
