We don’t know where to begin to express the joy and love we felt when we were with Julia and hunny Cecil. We first met them at the Capitol City Old Car Club. We both wintered in Florida for many years and spent a great deal of our time with them. She loved to play cards and dominoes. She was a classy lady and one we will miss for the rest of our lives.

I tagged along with Karen and Terry when we had dinner with Julia and Cecil and others, many times. Our times in the car club with all of the club members cannot be replaced!! It was always great!! And I will miss her for a very long time!! Many hugs to Cecil and their family!

Like Karen and Terry we also met Julia through Capitol City Old Car Club. She was a one of a kind person and we had so much fun when we were with Cecil and her. We had many good card games one year when they stayed next to us in Florida. She made delicious strawberry pies.
