Loved getting a little red in the potatoe pancakes she would so furiously shave!! Gramma Jule was a pisser!! Loved her rough and ready attitude! Wishing I was able to see her after age 100! So happy to have spent that special time with her! Rest in peace, Gramma Jule. Sing those Czech songs loud and clear for all the angels in heaven to hear!!
