Suzanne and family,
Was sad to hear about Grace's passing. The last time I visited her I was just a kid along with my brother George to play with her kids while mom and dad visited. May God bless you all, comfort you, and help you in this time of sorrow.

To the family of Grace Ashcraft: I am so sorry for your loss. Grace & I would go to the Touch of Mary Prayer Group on Wednesday nights in Troy. When we said the rosary after 10:30 Mass at St. Vincent Ferrer Church, she was there. She participated in Bible Study when Faith Ball was presiding over it. Anytime, there was a seminar on a Saturday, she was ready to go. Grace was a faith filled woman. She was always ready to talk about her experiences with God in her life. God love you, Charlotte Szwarc

Alex, so sorry to hear of Grandma Gracie's passing. She was the sweetest, I know how much you loved her. May the Lord be with you to comfort and guide you and your family through this most difficult time. The precious memories of your time with her will forever be in your heart.

Mom, I love you. I took it for granted that you would always be here and I can't change the past. But the one thing that I would never change is you being my mother.

We'll miss our Dear Cousin. Grace always had a smile and that twinkle in her eye, as she told us a story from 'The Good Old Days'. May God's comfort surround you all.
