My best to the family..... My father William ( Bill) P. Bordner ( also known as Laddy) is Grace's brother and wishes to send his sympathys to everyone.Unfortunatley he was not listed on her obituary as a brother and lost track of his sister over the years since there was not much communication. If you ( funeral Home) could please have a family member contact me via my email I would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you for your help and kindness.
