I remember meeting Rose, Grace, Allen and the boys for the first time in 1975. They were all immediately warm and friendly to me and accepted me into their family like one of their own. Grace was especially nice and talked to me like she had known me for years. I had never met anyone so accepting and welcoming before or since then. She had such a genuine and sincere personality that is so rare these days it sets her apart from most others.
In short, she was an angel. There is no doubt in my mind she is in Heaven and I can only hope to some day thank her for what she and Allan did for me those many years ago. Steven Neal Schlomer (California cousin).

Allen and Family - Grace was a good and long friend our now deceased mother Lynn Deiner. When my mother’s health was deteriorating, Grace made it a special point to come to our mother’s house and cut her hair. Our mom always enjoyed the company and the talks Grace and she had. I am sure they are continuing the conversation in heaven. Best of prayers, the Deiner boys.
