upon hearing the news yesterday of gracie's death, i thought of many childhood memories i have of gracie and mary ann. we were friends growing up and i treasure that friendship after all these years. i wish to extend my sympathy to her sweet children and grandchildren and her extended family. mary ann, please know that my thoughts are with you all and i pray for each of you to heal at this time. remember all the special and happy times and the love she had and showed to each of you. Memories are what we are left with after we lose someone so special, if i remember gracie at all, i know she made each of you all smile, laugh and happy. those times are pure gold. you are in my prayers and thoughts and god bless each of you. most sincerely, pam barefoot

"We weren't prepared for you to go You were too full of life to be Taken away from us so soon It's still hard to believe How much we'll miss your smile And your laughter in our ears Your absence leaves a hole in us We're filling with our tears You taught us how to be our best To in the moment live To never hold a grudge for long And loyal friendship give

We love you Gracie. You will be greatly missed. Our deepest sympathies go out to the family - may your memories bring you peace at this difficult time.

Thou I never met your mother, I know a mothers heart and know she loved you very much. No one can take the memories away. A mother is allways a mother even in death we still call her mom. My heart goes out to the family. Behold, I go and make a place for you, if it were not so I would have told you. Jesus Christ says I will wipe all tears and sorrow away. Behold I make all things new.

I was so sad to hear the news that Gracie had passed away but I feel at peace knowing that she is with our Lord. Gracie was my aunt and although I hadn't seen her for many years, I still have very fond memories of her from my when I was a child. My cousins Kim, Cindy and Bryan - bless all of you during this sad time. May God fill your hearts with peace and understanding. I love you.

Moma, I want you to know that I turly loved you and was proud to have a mama like you. You will ALWAYS be on my mind. I know we had our differenes in the past but, those should be forgotten and replaced with only happiness. I would do anything in the world if I could go back and change the past but, now all I can do is say I LOVE YOU VERY MUCH & YOU WILL BE SADLY MISSED but, NEVER FORGOTTEN!!! I Love you moma!!!
