How sad I am to hear of Gracie's passing. I knew she was very sick but I had hoped she would be able to enjoy her knew apartment for a while. But that was not to be. Now we are left with our memories, and boy do I have some good ones. I remember when we shared so many fun times in Denver. We were young and we laughed a lot, had a few tears, and supported each other in the ups and downs of our lives. I attended her daughter, Becky's wedding and she attended my sons. Even though it has been a few years ago since I last saw her, we kept in touch by phone, she in California, and me in Florida. Gracie was kind, generous, a beautiful person that I shall always treasure as my very special and loving friend. I am sad but so grateful for her friendship. With love, Jean

I have tears in my eyes as I try to remember all the wonderful moments I had in knowing Grace. From Denver to California there were so many crazy and wonderful times that we shared. She was always happy and funny and the most cherished friend. I will miss her always. Rest in peace dear friend.
