Grace was more than a mother, grandmother, sister or friend. She was a
shining example of Christianity. Her loving, generous ways will be treasured
by all who knew her. She is the treasure of our family, our matriarch, our
example for how our lives are to be lived. Through her tenderness of heart
she was given hope to more than one generation. We are thankful to have had
her as long as we did.
