Grandma Grace

Grace Hess McIntyre Smith, March 3, 1910 – May 4, 1969.

I was held by Grace

Statuesque, resolute, and the embodiment of her name –

she walked in grace.

I was held by Grace.

I don’t have a memory of her embrace;

I was a newborn child when she cradled me in her arms.

But there is a photo of her holding me which tugs at my remembrance…

I am Grace’s great granddaughter.


I was held by grace.
