Herman, Jr., and family, I am so sorry to hear of your loss and offer my sincerest condolences. Mrs. Grier was such a great teacher and personality. I remember, with fondness, her smile as she set me straight at Central High School. May God give you comfort and peace as you walk through this valley.

Growing up in Washington Hills was special. Equally significant was having Mrs Grier as a neighbor and teacher at Central High School. It’s true, a good teacher is like a candle - it consumes itself to light the way for others. If you’d like to experience real love just watch a teacher with a classroom full of students and you’ll see what real love ❤️ is ! God bless Van Hinton

Has anyone here seen my old friend Gloria
Can you tell me where she has gone
She touched our lives in many ways
Her warm smile and gentle spirit was infections
Seems the good they die young
We just looked around an she's gone
Rest in peace. God's little Angel!
