  1. Grace,
    THANK YOU for the gift
    of your kind words in my 60th Birthday Book
    that made me feel so very special!
    The greatest thing I can thank you for
    is all the lessons you and Jimmy taught me over the years!
    I’m writing a book on my ideas, and hope soon to become active with moving beyond the status quo in education at this crucial point in our nation’s history.

    Much love and peace to you in your 95th year of good works, Grace!
