We are so sorry to hear of your loss. But happy to hear Grace made it to 97, and now can rest with John and her son. We were neighbors of Grace and John on Eddy lane for 10 years and they were amazing people and really influenced our lives. They made us laugh, gave us advice, treated our son as family, loved our dog. We still talk about them all the time, they touched our hearts in so many ways, They will forever be a part of our family. We wish we could attend the service, again our sincerest condolences. JD and Grace, we love ya!!!!xoxoxo
