This is the first time I can remember four people ever getting together to write a nomination for one person, but that's what happened with this week's Kiss Country Caught in the Act Award Recipient Julia Hartsfield!

While Desiree Allridge actually submitted the nomination, Dan Walsh, Brittany Stewart Jennings, and Julia's husband Phillip Hartsfield all contributed. Here's what they had to say about this incredible woman:

We would like to nominate Julia Hartsfield for this week’s caught in the act recipient.

 

Julia is one of the most kind-hearted people I’ve had the pleasure to meet. She’s always doing everything she can to help everyone around her. If you need her she’s always there which I can say from personal experience. During any difficult time in my life she was there lending her support and a shoulder for me to cry on. She is always doing things for my kids and as a mother, nothing is more heart felt then seeing how much your child adores another human and that is how my daughter is with Julia. She strives to make everyone around her happy, and always puts others before herself.
-Brittany Stewart Jennings

 

Julia is definitely one of a kind. She has the biggest heart of anyone I’ve ever known. Unable to have kids of her own, she helped raise 2 nephews and a niece. Her nephews and niece along with her fur babies are like her own children because of all the love and support she has provided for them over the years. Julia has been a pharmacy technician for over 25 years and she takes care of all her patients like they’re her own family or children. She goes above and beyond for each one personally and I know this because I am married to her. I have witnessed on multiple occasions where she has answered phone calls on her days off or after hours and will go and deliver medication to patients herself just to help them. She’ll put her life on hold to help out anyone in need.
-Phillip Hartsfield

 

We moved to Louisiana a little over two years ago and in that short time that we have gotten to know Julia she has become family. Julia is the kind of person who wants you to be happy and will do anything she can to make it happen even if it jeopardizes her own happiness. Julia goes above and beyond to help those that surround her. Prime example of this is when I, Desiree, was in need of clothing for my profession and I did not have the money to purchase new clothes. Julia dug out some of her clothes and asked around to see who could help me during my time of need. She never asked for anything in return. This woman is amazing and anyone would be lucky to have her in their life. Most recently, we feel that life has not been fair to Julia and her struggles seem to continue for her but she perseveres through these struggles and has become a stronger person because of it. She is truly an inspiration and I could not be more thankful to have such a wonderful individual in my life. We hope you consider Julia for caught in the act because of all the wonderful things that she does for everyone. We would love nothing more than to shine a bit of light into her life like she does for everyone that surrounds her. This world would truly be a better place if we had more Julia’s around.
-Desiree Allridge and Dan Walsh
