Our deepest sympathies to Grace's family. You were named so right and each day you lived with much Grace and dignity. You will be remembered as the "Dessert Lady" from all the church's chicken & biscuits dinners. Norman always said you made the best raspberry pie ever. You never forgot a birthday or anniversary, sending cards from the Ogdensburg United Methodist church with a written note "me too". Now you are one of God's special angels and you will be once again with Bill.

Sincere Sympathy to the family of Mrs. Rogers. I always enjoyed our visits in the grocery and at the gym. She was one fiercely determined woman. She was my hero. May she rest in God's peace.

My Aunt Grace - I always remember the big, big hugs she would give me when I was a kid. She was so loving and always so happy. As an adult I grew to love and appreciate her more and more everyday and I always got the hugs! I always loved the Christmas letter, it was so nice to know what was going on and so kind of her to keep in contact and share the news! You always got a hug and a big smile when you saw her, whether she was mad at your or not, the big hug came and big smile was always there! The arms were always wide open ready for the HUGS!!!

A very great great Aunt to me - Cindy
She gave me wonderful advice on how to live with a Stuart since I am a Flint; how to plant the seed with a Stuart and how to powered my husbands Stuart nose when it needed it! Such wonderful information and yes the hugs and smiles were there each time I got to see her!
Forever in our hearts.
Our sincerest sympathies to the family! Love Douglas Stuart and Cindy M. Flint-Stuart

My deepest condolences for the family, she treated me like one of her own when I was growing up, always greeted me like I was part of the family, very pleasant and sincere. I was welcomed into her home and treated like a family member for many years. It is with great sadness that I say goodbye to a wonderful lady.....Judy Reese.....
