On one occasion while Grace and Caroline were shopping in Phila. I had gone to the packer residence and left my father outside in my vehicle. While inside, a secret service agent approached the vehicle and asked my father for ID. While my father was flustering about, the agent looked up towards a second floor balcony where he saw me and I indicated it was my father and not to worry. I had previously identified myself to the agent at an earlier time during the week! My father never saw the automatic weapon under the Secret Service's agent's coat!

BTW 1990s posted A REALLY altered view of the lifestyle Grace and Billy were living. Granted Billy and Grace partied somewhat, but they were in a very socially accepted circle and in the mid 80's this was the norm.Billy always said, "If you're gonna hoot with the Owls, ya gotta soar with the EAGLES"! They may have been partiers but they were responsible for their actions and were not purveyors of the drunken sexual orgies Spada infers. He says he attended (I assume 1990's is a man) many dinner parties, so did I and I recall things a little different than what he posts, I don't recall GRACE heavily abusing drugs or alcohol!

I don't EVER recall Grace HEAVILY abusing alcohol or drugs outside of social use.

If you (1990's) indeed knew them and spent time at their house, I should know you and YOU SHOULD know me! I had been friends with Billy since 1981, and was there when he first started dating Grace. I am also friendly with her parents, more so with Lizanne! Your perspective seems QUITE extreme, given the amount of time spent with them.

It is an agreeable point that Grace's death was tragic, way too soon for such an endearing friend!

As much as the over-all approach of this biography was to unearth Grace's alleged sexual nature behind her virginal facade --
This guy Spada what a piece of work!

Grace was always the warmest, wittiest and engaging person I have EVER met, and to say she was a vixen behind a false virginal facade?

Put another rock in your pipe James!

I had the pleasure of meeting Grace and her then boyfriend, Rick, when I had my wedding reception at her B&B in September, 1996... Grace was a warm, down-to-Earth hostess who loved her family history and was not afraid to show it. (Photos of Princess Grace and family were placed throughout the house). I was sorry to hear of her passing....

I'm 1990s and a woman. I'd stop by and see Grace in the afternoon and she was high/drunk on something. If I were married to Billy, I'd spend my life high/drunk also.

Any pictures of Grace Levine? So few pictures of her were published. She looked like a young Grace Kelly when she was 18 and I don’t' recall many photos of her in her later years. Such a pity and tragedy for her family that she died so young. Thanks 1990's and midnight satellite for your posts.

Here is the link to a picture of Liz Kelly. Hope it works. Philadelphia Inquirer, 1988
iloveroyals, do you still have that article and picture of Liz Kelly (Jack's daughter)? The link is broken. Or at least the date of the Philadelphia Inquirer article so I can look it up myself?

I went to Junior High with her in Ardmore, and we were quite good friends in 9th grade: I moved away the next summer and we were out of touch. When I knew her she was swimming hours a day, her family expected her to swim in the Olympics. Of course she never did. She also played the oboe, and of course got nothing but As in school. I was in awe of her.

My husband and I were watching the Olympics this week and I happened to think of her and her olympic aspirations. So my husband looked her up and discovered that she is deceased. Apparently she died in 2006 of cervical cancer. I was shocked. I would love to read that article, or at least see that picture of her. I am so sad her life turned out the way it did.
