    I was so sorry to hear the loss of your mom “Little Gracie”” She was a joy for her short time at Elmhurst and always had such a great sense of humor. My favorite memory of her was when I went shopping for clothes with her in St. Cloud. I never realized how much she enjoyed that. I was the one sitting in the mall, people watching while Gracie and Kristi shopped and shopped! Good times and beautiful memories of her! She will be missed by all!

    Dear Mark, David, Kristi, and families
    I learned of your Mom’s passing this morning. My day, and the days to come, was filled with sadness that the world lost one of its finest. I’ve always counted Carroll & Grace and family as our dearest friends. We loved being a part of their lives as their children grew and being there to love and support them and their family when Paul died. They were the best neighbors ever – they cared for our children as their own. Paul, David, & Kristi all babysat for our boys – such wonderful memories! Grace was blessed with a long life but still so hard to say goodbye to such a terrific lady! My love, thoughts, hugs, and prayers to you all.
