Journal entry by John Pacheco

Hello to Grace's loved ones and friends. Grace's obituary is running today in two publications in communities where Grace had strong ties and where many people who know Grace might be unaware of her passing.  Below are links to the online versions.

Santa Maria Times - Grace's hometown newspaper.

Vallejo Times-Herald - David's former newspaper; Grace and David lived in Vallejo for many years before settling in Sacramento.

Grace's obituary has also been published on the website of the funeral home that handled her cremation.  View this obituary.

A reminder for those of you interested in joining us: Grace's memorial mass will be held on Wednesday, September 20, 9:30 a.m., at Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament.  Refer to the previous journal posting for address, map, and direction details.

Thank you,

John, David, and Bravo
