      Zeke & I were very saddened to read about Grace’s passing.  It was just a short time ago that I was going through some old recipes & came across Grace’s baked walnuts recipe she gave me a long time ago.  We had many laughs back in the day at HJHS that I’ll always remember.   Our deepest sympathies, Joe, Jackie, Nadine & the rest of the family.  We will always fondly remember Grace & you will be in our prayers at this sad time.

      Joe, we are sorry for your loss. May she rip!
