Judy,
I was sorry to read of your Mother's passing. It brought back good memories of living at Valley Village, working at John Deere and meeting you. I met your mother at the office of Valley Village. I could tell she was a pretty sharp lady, I did not realize she was such a prolific writer.
Please accept my sincere sympathies for you and your whole family.

Grace was such a happy soul. Her laugh could warm your heart. She certainly earned her place in heaven many times over!

I took care of Grace at Mcc. She was definitely more of a friend to me than a patient. I will never forget her, prayers to the family. Love and miss you Grace.
