    Rest in peace Aunt Grace. You were such a kind and caring lady. I’ll never forget all the things you did for our family. Especially the Christmas gift you gave me when I was 13. It’s funny how often I still talk about it. You were always available whenever the family had medical issues. You were a great nurse and an even better person. You will be missed!

    Rest in peace Aunt Grace. I have so many fond memories of you and our family. My condolences sent to your sister. I was unable to attend the funeral due to the unexpected passing of my father and I was in Florida.
    You were a wonderful woman. Love you
