Mrs. Lovelace was just the most awesome person and teacher. She and my mom taught together at Dunbar. And I worked with her for advanced tutoring. I'm so sad to find out of her passing. She was the real deal!

The positivity that radiated from her is unmatched. She believed in you whether you believed in yourself or not. I will miss Grannymaw so much, and so very blessed she was able to witness her family growing over every generation. Her love for shoes, and hearts, laced with her laugh. You can only imagine her walking into your life and showing nothing but acceptance, and poise. The classiest woman I knew. She created a purpose and everlasting impact on many many many people. Forever in our hearts.
