My deepest sympathy to the family. Grace was an amazing lady. I have so many great memories of her and my moms friendship. I’m sure my mom was excited to see her. I’m sure her and your dad are already fishing.

Ray, Jeff and family,
When I was told that your mom had passed I thought of she and my mom being best friends all their lives. They loved going shopping for bargains and staying up evenings talking on the phone. Your mom will be missed. She was
special to me.
