Condolences for Grace Cramer

Margaret Hutchings and Dale & Pam Hutchings posted on 5/7/18

To all of Grace's family, We're so sorry to hear of dear Grace's passing. Many a weekend trip was made up north with the Hutchings/Cramer families. We remember all piling into your family's Chevy Nomad station wagon and heading camping with all of the gear loaded in the two-wheel trailer. We enjoyed those 4th of July fireworks picnics at your house, as well. We had many a laugh over all of the practical jokes your folks played on each other. Hold those memories dear. We're thinking of you.
