Our heart goes out to the family of the passing of Miss Julie as we called her at the VFW 857' She brought a ray of sunshine in to us when she walked thru the door to have her favorite drink of a glass of beer with ketchup !

So sorry for your loss. She was a beautiful person. I loved sitting with her and just talk and listen to her stories. After my own mother she told me that I was her daughter. I just smiled and started calling her mom. we will miss you and we ll love you.
