I am writing this for my Mom, Dolores, who was Grace's cousin. She lives in CA, and had been asking about Grace. I found some letters where they corresponded, as my parent's just moved to assisted living. She will be sad when I tell her about Grace's passing. They corresponded about her visits to Newcastle when she was a child, and about her Father, who often stayed with Grace's family.

I am so sorry for your loss!! I met Grace about 3 years ago and we became fast friends. I work in Life Enrichment at Collingswood Nursing. We are both of Italian origin and from similar areas of the country- my family from Eastern Ohio. We loved talking about Italian food and customs. She and I also played many card games together. She came into my life as I was losing my Dad and so I think our friendship helped us both! May she Rest In Peace and I will miss her.
