Grayce was like a dear "sister" to me, for over 55 years! We practically raised
our kids together. It was nothing for us to spend an hour or more on the phone "gabbing". Even lately, when I couldn't hear and she couldn't talk much, we shared jokes and funny stories through the mail. I loved her and I WILL MISS HER!!

I will miss my dear Aunt Grayce. I've known her all my life from the time my parents were her neighbors in Warrensburg. I admired and loved her very much. She was a classy lady! I am guilty of assuming she would always be here! My prayers are with you Suzie, Mark and Paul. My mother will miss her dear friend.
