    To All:

    I am so sorry for your loss. I knew Grace many years ago when I was married to Garry Smith (Bud Godfrey’s nephew). She was such a lovely kind lady. I would run into her every once in awhile, the last time being as we were both strolling along River Road. Please give my condolences also to Uncle Bud, June, and Lorne.


    Cynthia, Shelley, and Darren Smith

  3. Jim and I would like to extend our heartfelt sympathy to Grace’s family. We had many enjoyable Sunday lunches at the Pitt Meadows Golf Club after church at St Andrew’s United. Joan visited Grace and George as the Long Term Care Case Manager many years ago. They were both special people in our lives. God bless you all.
