I witnessed the incident. Saturday evening, 4.13.1968 I was working at Pronto, mop in hand, speaking with Ron Allen at the doorway. We heard the collision, saw the car flip over-end and immediately burst into flames. There may have already been a small flame while it was moving. Ron dashed immediately out to the corner -- not to be a 'Looky-Loo' -- but to try to help and render aid. There was nothing he could do; the immense heat was overpowering. Many classmates do not know that about Ron. We found out who was in the car Monday, when it was announced in class. Every time -- I mean every time in the last 41 years that I pass through that intersection, I envision that fateful night, and remember Deidre and Grace...

I so remember that Monday when we all learned about Deidre and Grace.  We all were out and about that night and many of us lived near that intersection. Could have been any one of us in that accident.  It was a great loss and made me feel powerless.

Deidre was one of the nicest girls I knew at GGHS.  She was kind, funny, and a very good student.  It was such a shock to lose her in such a horrific accident.  I think of her often, all these years later.

I went to school with Diedre for eight years at St. Columbans and four years at GGHS. She was one of the smartest in our class. Grace was my buddy in PE. I too was devastated when it was announced at Sunday mass at St. Columbans and I think of them quite often.
