We share your grief and loss. Husband, Dad, Brother, Uncle and friend. Aunt Grace’s loss too soon has stayed with me always. Remember fondly Ida and George playing their version of pinochle at the camp on Kinderhook Lake with Grandpa Harry, Gram Anna, Aunt Grace, Uncle Harold, Mom Edna Mae and Dad Wayne. ( We watched the Yankees or went out in the boat, Or got in trouble with Steve, Mike or Karen (Red.) The fridge downstairs was always stocked with soda. Thank you Frommers for the wonderful lifelong memories. God bless…
