I am so glad that I got to renew my acquaintance with Aunt Grace at the last few family reunions (I am Alvie Moore's daughter). Her welcoming smile and remembrance of my name was very special to me. Her appreciation of "family" and effort to attend the family events helped encourage us to make the effort to attend and maintain family ties. I especially appreciate her sharing memories of my Dad and their childhood growing up on the farm in Potomac Hollow, or Moore's Run, as it was called. Sympathy and prayers to all who knew and loved her.
