Judy and I first met Gracie last year at Toots' funeral services. Bill Burnham, Gracie, and Lawson Burnham were most gracious and well remembered . My Grandmother Addie Burnham Gibson was a sister of Gracie's father. That makes me a bit removed. Gracie and I exchanged photos and a newspaper clip earlier this year. She was a lovely woman who I hardly got to know. God Bless, Bob Lawrence

First, my deepest sympathy to the family. Heaven has gained another Angel with Grace. She was a true friend and neighbor to my Mom and a blessing to us both! She stayed with Mom 8 days when she lost her husband, brought her soup when she was sicjk and they checked on each other everyday. They were best friend and neighbors for 40 years. Grace will live in our hearts forever, the void will never be filled, however our memories of her will never fade.

All who were in here presence were taught a lesson of life and how it should be lived...however; if you told her this she would be surprised...if you told her you wanted to emulate her actions...she would be surprised...she lived as we all should...unconditionally loving each person she came in contact with...What a gift she was to the world and to me...I will forever miss you but remember all of the things that you taught me about living...about life...and I will try CONSTANTLY to live what I have been shown...unconditional love...I love you and will keep you with me each and every day of my life. I love you Aunt Grace and I thank you for all the precious gifts you have given me! oxox
