We only met Grace a few times at Rapcan events and knew right away what a lovely lady she was.
So sorry to hear of Grace's passing John. Our thoughts are with you and your family at this difficult time.
She will be missed.

I remember Grace so well from the first time I met her on the golf course in Westbrook. She seemed so “proper” that I was careful not to use any bad language which often accompanied my poor play. Things changed when I flubbed a drive off the tee and Grace said “ That is a FISH”. When I asked her what that meant, she said “ F..k, It’s Still Here!” Whenever I was out with friends after that and ran into Grace, I would always proudly introduce her as the FISH lady. She was a great woman and will be missed.

I first met Grace when I joined a painting class a few years ago. We sat beside one another at these classes and we ladies in the group were always chatting about all kinds of things, as Grace was interested in many topics. As well, Grace often spoke about her children and we all knew she absolutely adored them.

She certainly will be missed.

John and family. Dave & I are sorry to hear of Grace’s passing. We still talk about the time you graciously invited us to spend sometime with you and Grace in Myrtle Beach. You and Grace only knew us through the GWRRA family. Grace was a very special Lady,she will be missed. We are thinking of you during this difficult time.
