Dear Mike, Please accept my sincere condolences. I was so saddened to read that Mary Grace has passed away. She was such a wonderful person and a good friend. Her kindness, support and determination were just a few of the qualities that helped me through a difficult time in our career. I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to call her my friend. Take comfort in the fact that those beautiful "Irish eyes" are smiling down upon us from Heaven. My Heartfelt Sympathy, Zita Anstett

Michael, Mary Grace, Rick & I were lucky to have been brought together by our children and we bonded right off. I always looked forward to our phone conversations. I especially loved our times together sitting at the kitchen table over a cup of coffee gabbing and laughing like two school girls. I will sorrily miss you Mary Grace and you hold a special place in my heart.

Rest in God’s arms.

Love, Sharon Renault
