Karen, I am so sorry for you and your family. I know what a great woman your mom was just from listening to you talk about her. God Bless. Dale
My heartfelt condolences to the entire family during this difficult time. I am so thankful that I had the chance to spend time with Grace this past year. She didnít recognize me all the time but hugged me like she knew me forever! I will truly miss her. Please know that Bob and I are just down the road and our love and support will be here for you.

Karen, I am so sorry to hear about the passing of your dear mother. Over the years you have spoken so lovingly about her and as her health diminished I could see the pain in your eyes. She was so very lucky to spend her last years on this earth in your loving home. I am sure she felt safe being there with you and your family. Your love and compassion for her has also been a blessing for your dad at this difficult time. I will keep you all in my heart and prayers. Hopefully, knowing that you did everything possible for her will ease your pain and bring you happiness in beautiful memories. Love, Denise Lawrence
Although many years have passed since we were neighbors on Shurtleff Street in Chelsea, we have not forgotten Grace's friendly smile and kindness to children in the neighborhood. May she rest in peace, and in time may your grief give way to hearts filled with memories of happy times spent with her. Harriet Delyani and children: Dino, Tony, Ann, and Chris
My dear Ellen. I am so sorry for the loss of your mother. I know how much you adored and loved her. My heart and thoughts are with you and your family. As we have talked before losing the love and presence of someone one you loved so deeply can cause such pain and heartbreak. Remember the good times and know that she is at peace and has joined others that she had loved and lost. Iím here for you. With much love to you Karen
