I will always remember Gracie! She was so funny in school. She didn't have much, but she made the best of what she did have. My sister and I went to the funeral home when her son died and there she was still Gracie, being funny and smoking those cigarettes like crazy! I will always have fond memories of her.

I had not seen Gracie for many, many years until 1979. My wife was in the hospital to give birth to our second son (after fourteen years!) and to my amazement there was Gracie in the next room also having just delivered a second-generation child. She was still the same as in high school, full of laughter and rolling with all the punches that life was giving her. I am thankful for those memories.
