Messages for the Family

  1. Gerri Vandercook says:
    William M. Gray, raised on a farm, a country boy, took people at face value. What they said they were, or pretended to be, he believed, just like his wife, Grace Howell Gray, who was also raised on a farm, believed the same. Simple, genuine, god fearing people, they worked hard to support their family, and do the best they could by their kids, and loved them all the same. God bless them both.
