Grace was such a wonderful friend, generous, thoughtful and fun. We are blessed to have her in our lives for the last 30 years. Grace helped with every project I did - from funeral booklets to wedding mass books to any type of desk top publishing. She was always there for me and for anyone in our Sugar Creek neighborhood. Gracie designed our newsletter and was a staunch supporter of our Association.
Any party was enhanced by Grace's great sense of humor, quick wit, and gracious kindness.

The Sodic Family will miss Grace, aka Aunt Susie, and we cherish the memories we have.
