Wow! I cannot believe that Mr. Grace died... I couldn't believe it when my brother called me today and told me. But now that I checked, he was there (I was hoping that it was the wrong person, but it was true). I had Mr. Grace as a counselor in Roosevelt Middle School, many years ago. I occasionally visited him, last time I saw him I was told him that I was going to school to be a teacher, but now that I'm done, I will not have the chance to tell him :( My thoughts go out to his family. I will never forget him, his smile, his help and his simple hello's that made me feel welcomed. Like many have said above, he was a great man and will be he will truly missed. My prayers go out to Mr. Grace's family. God Bless
