The generalization of graceful labeling is termed as k-graceful labeling. In this paper it has been shown that? C?_(n ),n?0(mod4) is k-graceful for any k?N (set of natural numbers) and some results related to missing numbers for k-graceful labeling of cycle? C?_n, comb? P?_n?1K_1, hairy cycle C_n?1K_1and wheel graph? W?_n have been discussed.
