My sincere condolences to Aunt Grace's family and friends. She was a kind and witty lady who helped me get my feet on the ground when I moved to Brandon in the fall of 1987. Sue and I will always remember our lively visits with her an Uncle Bob. - Posted by: Bruce Schollie (Nephew) on: Oct 25, 2014
