To the Scherler Family - I was the mail carrier on Harrison for many years, and I remember your mom fondly. She & Dale would get packages and she always made sure I had something to drink when it was hot, and the snow was shoveled in the winter. My sympathies to you all, may she Rest In Peace.

Marvin, Ken, Dale, Bruce and Quincy, I'm so sorry for the pain you must be feeling with the loss of your mom. No matter what age we are, that is never easy. I hope that pain passes quickly and that you can soon smile as you think of her and all of your favorite memories.

Marvin, Ken, Dale, Bruce and Quincy I’m so very sorry to hear of your mother’s passing. I hadn’t seen Grace for quite awhile but will always remember how welcoming she was when I would show up at the house on Harrison. Usually a big smile and first time I was over with Kenny she said “ and now who’s this one Kenny”.
With all the boys I’m sure that came up quite abit! Made me smile....

Marvin, Ken, Dale, Bruce, & Quincy. So sorry for your loss.
Aunt Grace was my favorite Aunt.
I remember several times when Dad traveled to Iowa on business, & he would be in the area for a couple days at a time. When school was out I would go with him and we would stay at her house overnight so we didn’t have to get up so early to go to the next
place he had to go. We had good times back then.

Oh my, such a absolute sweetheart of a woman. Bruce I know I haven't seen you in so many years, as well as your Mom but you have always been thought of so fondly. To see the empty yard on Harrison where your childhood home once stood always saddened me. Memories of you and my brother Dale riding your bikes and playing in the creek and having to drag me along. I'm so deeply sorry for the great loss of your Mom. I send my love and heartfelt condolences. There are people that come and go in peoples lives, but your family and the memories I have of them are ones I choose to keep really close to my heart. Your Mom was a exceptional person and I'm so grateful to have known her.
