Dr. Edmond Locard, the famous French criminologist, is known for Locard's Exchange principle: "Everyone entering a room will unknowingly leave something and unknowingly take something away". Grace Junkin has taken away a portion of our hearts but has left us a lasting example of grace, dignity, and kindness towards others. The world is poorer for her passing but richer for the nearly l00 years of her presence.
