  1. To the Hart family- I will miss Grace and Vince dearly. (Mr and Mrs Hart as I always addressed them growing up) I remember vividly the long talks and story telling from both Vince and Grace on the front porch during the long hot summers in Torrance growing up. I remember how fiesty and competitive Mrs Hart could be while playing darts in the back room where the dart board was for many years. Those were fun experiences that I will cherish for a lifetime. As a kid I remember playing ball with Nick the old labrador that both Mrs and Mr Hart loved and ofcourse playing with the cheerful birds that sang throughout the house. My sincerest condolences go out to the entire Hart family. Grace will be dearly missed but is now resting well with Vince forever. Sincerely, Kenneth Norman

  2. Grace touched my heart. She was a wonderful friend and neighbor. I loved to watch her garden or look after her birds or tortoises. She always had a smile, and I looked forward to seeing her across the street when I lived by her. I know she will be missed by many.
