I did not have the honor of ever meeting Grace, but I can see her work ethic and smarts through her son George.

Rest in peace, Grace.

My sincere condolences to George and Lee Ann. Your mother was my second grade teacher in Magnolia in 1952-53. She was a great teacher, and I have many good memories of her during that school year. I had lost track of her years ago. I also remember your dad.

Sincerely, Mike Epley
