    Thinking of you Joe, Cathy, Tony and Lucy during this difficult time. My fond memories of Mrs G include eating her leftovers late at night, and boy, they were good. A very special woman.

  2. She was always very good to my son Patrick when he and Stephen were pals as little boys and when they were older too. I always loved her gentle ways…..and she had the same name as my mom… Grace which was a perfect name for them… Rest in Peace Dear Sweet Lady! My sincere condolences to the family….
