Grace Bizzari ~ My Loving Aunt and Godmother… I have such fond memories of going to Fairpoint and staying with Aunt Grace and Uncle Bob. She was such a great cook, and always made everything look effortless! I don’t think any of us ever knew how she did it all. We loved you very much Aunt Grace and you will be missed! Glad you are reunited with Uncle Bob and all of your siblings! God’s peace and love, Becky
