Dear Paula, Mark and family: We are so sorry about the passing of Aunt Grace. I have many childhood memories visiting Aunt Grace and Uncle Guerino for family celebrations at Christmas and during the summer for cookouts. I was also fortunate to have worked at General Electric during the summer of 1972 and 1973 with Aunt Grace and would visit her during lunch breaks where we would talk about work and family. Aunt Grace, we will miss you and will pray for you. Love, Anne, Faith, Shawn, Ryan and Nick Costantino
