The things I remember about Aunt Grace is how warm, receptive and kind she was. Her personality was beautiful and bold! She was a very sweet and full of life. A book of knowledge about her life and the family. She loved to share her stories. One of the most wonderful people I've met in this life. She led a full and loving life. May God rest her soul. Shes now Angel Grace as shes earned her wings. Fly high Aunt Grace! Thanks for the memories.

My dearest Godmother, my Aunt Grace Clarizio, passed away. I am saddened by this loss of such a wonderful encouraging positive Christian woman in my life. She lived for 100 years. I am feeling God's peace knowing she is in Heaven now. God Bless you Aunt Grace. I am forever grateful to have been in your life and experience your love and laughter. I raise my glass of ginger ale to toast you. And I want to tell one of your jokes, "What type of dog does not bark?"...........A hot dog. God Bless you my love.
