    Nikki, Fay and Families,

    We were very saddened to hear the news about our dear Grace. We all remember her as one of the kindest, sweetest and caring people that we have ever known. These were the reasons, and more, that Mom loved her so dearly. They are likely having a great reunion now. May God bless Grace, you and all of your families!

    With our love, prayers and very best regards,

    Katie’s Kids
