I think I can speak for many in saying that our lives are richer by meeting Grace, being counted as one of her friends and having our souls lifted by her infectious laugh.
To Jr. and family, I am very sorry for OUR loss. Have faith we will see her again in Paradise.

To Grace's love ones,
I was saddened to read this online this morning. Grace was a very special person, always smiling and her laugh was unforgettable. She always had a story to tell about her children and grandchildren, we enjoyed her visits to our office. May time heal your heart and memories comfort your soul.
