Grace always had a smile when we would visit her in Florida. My mother and father (Joe and Vi Tokarz) lived on the same street at Lake Conley. And my mother went to high school with Grace. My mother passed away in 2017 but my dad is still living and will be 99 in November. My deepest sympathy to all of your family. Carol Turner (daughter of the Tokarzs)
