Harris tells TMZ, "My whole heart goes out to [the Hug family] today as they mourn a precious life that ended far too soon."

She continues, "It’s very difficult to find the words to express my condolences, but I will always remember Julien’s gentle demeanor and kind heart, which will be sadly missed.”
