We were saddened to hear of your Moms passing. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

Sending sincere sympathy to each and every one of Grace’s family, my second cousins, a woman much loved and cared for by her large extended family. She lived to a wonderful age, a credit to her family’s care. Much love and blessings to you all.

My Precious Family,
I am so grateful for the wonderful memories we have of Nan. I love that we can reminisce with joy, pride and laughter. I wanted to share that Nan was a woman of great faith in Jesus. I remember on numerous occasions as a little girl, sleeping at Nan’s place and she and I praying together. When I moved on to BC and experienced various difficulties that life sometimes brings, I called Nan to share. Her advice to me was to get the bible and sleep with it under my pillow. She knew the power and importance of God’s word. I will be forever grateful to her for the inheritance of faith. Love you Nan! You did an awesome job!

Sorry for your loss

My heart sank when I got the news that my Aunt Gracie, passed away even though I know that she lived a long beautiful life. She is gone to be in heaven with the Lord.

God looked around his garden
and found an empty space
Then He looked down upon this earth
and saw your tired face
He put his arms around you
and lifted you to rest
God’s garden must be beautiful
He only takes the best

Saddened to hear about aunt Grace’s passing but truly grateful that she reached such an age. There are way too many wonderful memories to mention about Aunt Grace. I guess I spent as much time at her house as I did at home. Thinking about all the family as you go through this difficult time. RIP beautiful aunt and godmother.

Our Deepest Sympathy to all of Aunt Grace’s family. May She Rest In Peace!!!
