Jeanne and Ted, Pat and Kathy, Cynthia and R. David, Joe and Rachel, John and Lucrecia and all the grand children and great grandchildren. My love and sympathy to everyone. I have many wonderful memories being a part of Grace's life for 39 years. She meant so much to me, we shared many conversations and had quite a few laughs. She was a wonderful and caring lady and I will miss her always. Love, Diane Mootz
