I will remember Grace fondly. I lived across the street from her. My heart sunk when I saw the ambulance there the other night. I knew God had taken her home :( I will miss seeing her out pruning flowers in the morning. I never saw that woman without a smile. She was a beautiful woman inside and out.
My deepest heartfelt condolences to her Family & Friends.
RIP Grace🙏
