Burnt sugar glaze,
Aunt Julia made the best angel food cake in the world. At the last reunion, I asked Aunt Julia to teach me how to make her glaze. She said sure, a cup of sugar was placed in a cast iron skillet and stirred for hours, (or so it seemed). After hours of stirring the sugar until it was brown she said, "now we can start on the glaze". She went on to make her famous glaze. I never knew until that moment the love and work she put into that glaze.
Just like her family and her life, she put so much work into them and stirred to perfection. 🥰 I love you dearly Aunt Julia and will miss you dearly.

She was one of our special cousins, sweet, kind and always reminded me of Aunt Grace. She will be missed so much. Love and prayers to all of her family. Love Ann

Julia was such a kind lady, my best memory of Julia is when we took her and her sister Bonnie to Uncle Bill’s chili feed, we had so much fun! So sorry for your loss.

Heaven gained a true angel today! Aunt Julia was the best aunt I could ever ask for! I had a special spot in her heart….even tho I wasn’t a boy. 😆She spoiled me & her love for me and all her family was pure and genuine! Couldn’t ask for a better person for an aunt! We will all miss you! Tell everyone in Heaven hello from all of us below! Love, Lynda & family 💕
