    Aunt Gracie was one if the kindest caring people around. She was so welcoming and always made me feel safe and loved. I have so many fond memories of staying with her and Uncle Donald over the years. Aunt Gracie, you are loved dearly and will be missed. Until we meet again when I can share my appreciation and love. Enjoy your reunion with your sweet husband and family. I love you! Lisa Dawn

    I am so sorry for your loss. Although, I do not know your family personally, I would like to share some encouraging thoughts from the Bible. The Bible provides comfort during these difficult times. Revelation 21:3-4 states, And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away. Very soon now, we will never experience losing our loved ones in death and we will be able to see them again once they resurrected as per John 5:28-29. May these words give you a new hope.

    Aunt Grace, I thought you had many more good years to your life. You surprised us and sneaked away. I think I remember something when I was a little girl. I think possibly Donnie and I picked you red bug flowers. Not sure if Donnie remembers or not. Of course you deserved better than redbug flowers but we didn't know the difference. I think someone told me they were redbug flowers anyway. Maybe Donnie will remember this.

    Uncle Donnie, Aunt Janet, and family. I am so sad about Aunt Gracie, but she was a good Christian woman and she's in Heaven enjoying eternity with Jesus. I know it's a difficult time, take comfort in the knowledge she's with her loved ones in Heaven and that she loves you all still. Kimberly Horton and family
