Mary Lou Wade (Bartrow)

Grace was a life long friend of mine.  We were members of the RLDS church and Girl Scout Troop 36.  We were able to stay close, up to the time she returned to her creator on June 1st, 1980.  Having the same lunch hour at PHHS, we saw each other every day and shared a lunch table with our friends from Lake Port.  We had so many laughs. One year we decorated her car for  homecoming and rode in the parade. 

Grace and her husband Michael have three children.  She developed breast cancer when her youngest was about four years old. She never lost her will to live and her faith to do it.  When she was limited to a wheel chair, she visited homes on a church week-end to invite them to worship.  She had the love and support of a wonderful family and her legacy is one of courage, love, and like her name, Grace.    I miss you friend, Mary Lou

Grace and I were best friends from the time her family moved to the corner of Krafft and State Rd, and what was then just called Port Huron.  The city was not divided up like it is now into little burros with towns taking the names of what use to be the townships.  Her mother and my grandfather use to both work at what was then called 'Autolite'.  Grampa took her in his car pool to work until her family purchased another car.  I didn't know this at the time, and our family lived not far away on Parker Rd, so it was convenient for them to share the ride.

Grace and I were always close until we went to highschool and were split because of different lunch hours.  We still did things together.  Her mother would take us to the roller rink in Croswell most every Saturday and we met some nice friends.  That is where she met her husband Mike.  I went with her a couple of times to Girl Scouts to see what it was like and even to the new church located on Pinegrove Ave.

Earlier this year I had a nice chat with her sisters Cindy, and Lynn.  Lynn and her husband live in a condo in Florida and Cindy lives in Oregon. They still sounded like Grace's little sisters on the phone.

I miss Grace and the fun things we use to do growing up.  She was a beautiful person, inside and out.
