I extend my warmest condolences and deep sympathies for your loss. And wishing all of the family peace to bring comfort, and courage to face the days ahead. May all of you also draw added comfort and hope from God’s word the Bible: “He will swallow up death forever, And the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces.” (Isaiah 25:8); “The hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear [Jesus’] voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life.” (John 5:28, 29); “There is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.” (Acts 24:15); “The sea gave up the dead in it, and death and the Grave gave up the dead in them.” -Revelation 20:13
Grace was a very special friend. I am going to miss her so much. We have had many years together and she was a joy to be with. I loved all the special talks have had throughout the years. I Love you Grace ♥️
It is with great sadness that I learn of Grace’s passing. We met Grace and Fred through a mutual family friend. Our parents became great friends with them and there were many visits from Grace and Fred as we were growing up. Our Mom maintained a wonderful correspondence with Grace and we all looked forward to Grace’s letters. Full of humor and common sense. We would read her letters out loud and enjoyed them so much. I continued to correspond with Grace for many years until her eyes were failing her and the letters became more infrequent. She and Fred meant a lot to my parents, my siblings and myself. They were special people. Grace, my family loved you very much.
