Donna & family...so very to hear about Grace. We had so much fun together...always talking about cooking & cookbooks & exchanging recipes. You were always in for a fun time and a good bite of food when together. Have thought of her so very often. She will always hold a special place in my heart.

My prayers go out to Grace's family. I've know Grace a long time. We worked many hours together at the Villager, most of them were good times, busy but good. She will truly be missed by all.
