EPILOGUE: THE DAYS AFTER
Excerpt from letter to Joan from Prince Rainier, October 2nd, 1982:
"...Grace was such a beautiful person and such a wonderful human being, full of love and kindness, that maybe she was not really made for this world of violence and misery. And so God took her in his Kingdom. We have lost so much with Grace's departure from this world, the void left is terrible. Yet her presence is everywhere, where we look, what we touch, what we talk about. The children are wonderful and such comfort, we are very closely united in our sorrow and the wonderful memory of our darling Grace. Grace was very fond of you, and I know she was happy that you shared our holiday cruise this summer..."
