I have many fond memories of Aunt Grace especially growing up. The family
would all gather at my grandparents home in DeKalb,MO at holidays and my grandparents birthdays. There would always be an abundance of delicious food with all contributing by bringing their own special dishes.. Aunt
Grace would always make salmon salad. I cannot remember what anyone else made, not even my own mother. The thing I especially remember that
Aunt Grace would play the piano and we would gather around her and sing.
One of the songs that we sang was "Moonlight Bay"
She also played monopoly with the nieces and nephews.
A lot of those years when we were growing up she would come back from KC to spend the weekends with my grandparents, so my cousins and my brother were fortunate to be able to spend a great deal of time with her.
She was a classy lady and she will be missed.
