Hi, I was out of town and was stunned to learn of Grace’s death. Truly she never met a stranger and will be greatly missed. I thought of her as an older sister. Will there be a service at church also? I have a little photo of her with John McCain, if you are putting up pictures at the service. My condolences to the family, Jackie
