I remember when she came up to her class reunion she would bring my great grandmother up and we would go out to eat with me, mom grandma and Aunt Grace. And we also shared a love for cats.

Prayers to all of you. Caitlyn (Frances' great granddaughter) misses her dearly. Grace was so faithful in helping her sister come back to the Farmville area once she moved to Williamsburg.

My condolences to the family and friends of Ms Grace. I pray God will strengthen and comfort each of you. I worked out at the AASF for almost ten years as a Personnel Sergeant in the 224th Aviation Battalion . It was always a pleasure and a joy to see Ms. Grace. I really enjoyed our many conversations. She was always kind, considerate, and supportive. She was truly one in a million.
