I give my deepest condolences. She was an amazing lady. I worked in the store for only two weeks out of the year and she had me call her Grandma Grace. She treated me like I was one of her own. She was always so loving and generous. She will be missed. Much love.

I wish to express my deepest sympathy to Aunt Grace's children, grandchildren and friends. Aunt Grace had so much love. She gave me wise counseling and words of wisdom several years ago that I will never forget. I remember the times my family visited with her and Uncle Elmer in the summertime as I was growing up and all the fun we had. And as an adult, all the laughter my mother and I had with Aunt Grace. She will remain in my heart forever and will be missed. As II Corinthians 5:8 states "to absent from the body is to be present with the Lord" so I can rejoice in knowing she is with our Lord and I will see her again. Our earth seems a little bit empty without her but I am sure heaven is so much fuller.
Your niece,
