I remember a beautiful cousin who was always kind and good humored. Even though I have not seen her in 40 years she was always thoughtful in sending Christmas cards to me for years. We just lost track, I moved so much.
I know she will be missed by all who loved her.

I am so sorry for your loss of your beloved Grace. I am blessed with so many wonderful moments shared with Grace as well as the rest of your family. One ordinary moment that has stood out as extraordinary is one day when Grace fixed a plate of appetizers, if you will. It was a plate with bologna and cheese sliced and arranged beautifully on the plate. She served that with Ritz or saltines. The lesson and the love that it was served with is what made that one of the VERY best appetizers and memorable moments I ever had and will never forget. The lesson being that no matter what you have, you can share and present it with grace. It is also always good to remember and appreciate where you came from and the people who love you. Grace did not spell this out… nor did she need to. It was how she lived her life, full of grace. (Besides, good bologna is good bologna)! Love to you Grace. May your family be comforted by their own wonderful times shared with you. I know you are enjoying your reunion with Jim and Karen. Love, Barb (White) Nehls
