Hearing about Mrs. Graces passing brought me right back to such warm memories about living across from her and her family in Medfield for many years! I will always remember my mom and her calling each other up on the rotary phone whenever something of interest was happening in the neighborhood or just standing on the sidewalk catching up. We loved her as a neighbor and friend and I am so sorry to her of her passing. I take comfort in knowing that my mom and Mrs. Grace have eyes on heaven making sure that there are no shenanigans. May your memories of how many lives she touched give you comfort during this difficult time.

Barbara was always a lady, honest, joyful and very funny. I had the pleasure of working with her at Memorial School and Summer Experience Camp. She was such a loving wife, mother, sister, grandmother and friend to so many. I was glad to have a final conversation on the phone with her several weeks ago. She sounded great, making me laugh, being so strong. Now she is with her sister in heaven. She lived a beautiful life. She was a very special friend.
