The funeral event was beautiful. I know it would have made my dear Aunt Grace proud. The voices of Gerry and my "sister" Carolyn both soothed and watered our eyes yet again. I have so many stories I can share about this wonderful woman who had such a sense of humor, so intelligent, so warm. She was our matriarch and now my generation is on the front line with a lot to live up to. She blessed me with her attitude of never giving up and always managing to find the bright side, even during tough times. I learned many life lessons from her including patience, perseverance and above all the ability to laugh and make others laugh when you least expected it and when it was most needed. I will miss her badly but she will always be a part of my nature. Aunt Grace's life is an example of the best of us, may we never forget.

Aunt Grace was my favorite aunt and her daughter, my cousin Carolyn is like a sister. We lived close by when I was growing up, and and our families almost always had Sunday dinner together. I will truly miss Aunt Grace. Her passing marks the end of a generation and a passing of the mantle to the next. We will have to reach to achieve the standards she set.

When the Lord calls our loved ones home, He leaves a gift of memories in exchange. God bless you Carolyn and Family. In deepest sympathy, love always, Helen and Bill Parker
