We are so thankful that God chose us to enjoy a friend, filled with the love of Jesus. Her sweet smile, blessed inspiration, and encouraging personality brought joy to our hearts. Mrs. Grace has been a gift from God, making each visit with her a precious memory to pull from our treasure chest and reflect upon in the future.
Her family was near and dear to her heart. What pride she felt in each one!
She will truly be missed, but I’m sure our Jesus will enjoy her loving presence and her constant inspiration in glory! What a blessing she has been❣️
