Grace was the oldest cousin of my generation. In this 1925 photo of her with our mutual great-grandmother, Mary Ella Taylor Butterfield, I think she looks not so different than she did in her old age. I appreciated the visits and conversations about our ancestors she and I had about ten years ago.
May she journey well into the world of spirit.
