  1. I remember all of the work that Grace used to do at the church, especially gluing the angels to the paper sacks for the quarter draw at the Annual Angel’s Auction. We had to let her use her own glue, because the glue we had was “stinky”. She always brought her grandchildren (JR and Kim’s daughters) and we got to watch them grow up. We miss you all, and are so sorry for your loss; I know her being gone really is a loss for the family. I have adopted her Maui Zucchini Bread as my favorite recipe. Love to you all.
