The last message registered in my husbands name but it was actually from me - Tammy Yarborough Rockefeller NOT from Bob Rockefeller

I spent a lot time in her home with Tricia back in our high school days. Love that Jeannie and Alice too. So so very sorry to hear this - my thoughts and prayers are with all of you. She was one special lady - like a second mom to me ... she passed away the same day my mother did but I lost my mom in 1985. Again my thoughts and prayers are with the family.

Mrs Grace was a beautiful lady inside and out. I am so very sorry for your loss. While Mrs. Grace is no longer with us in body, she will always be with us in our hearts and souls. I find peace in knowing that she and Trisha have been united once again. I can only imagine the reunion of those two! I so enjoyed our phone conversations over the years! Harold, you have stood with and beside Mrs. Grace through thick and thin! God Bless all of you, I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. My deepest sympathies, Jan Spicher
