Grace was a Godly and special lady that was always so kind to me. I made many visits to her house and she was always so gracious. I will never forget when Celia and I redecorated her bathroom and she was so excited. I was so afraid that it would not be satisfactory to her. She loved it and I loved doing it for her. Enjoyed the Wednesday visits and dinners at her house when I got to spend time with her and Celia. Eddie would come in for lunch to join us. She will be greatly missed. She was a good Mother and had 2 children that were very devoted to her. Rest in peace Grace as you will be in Heaven to celebrate the birth of our Savior. Until we meet again, Deborah McDonald
