    My heart truly breaks for all of your family at this difficult time. I had the pleasure of meeting your Mom and found her to be a wonderful lady. She was talented in her crafts and a pleasure to speak with. Know that she will always be in your hearts.

    My condolences to Martin, Debbie and Wendy and their respective family’s on the passing of Grace. My heart is heavy with her ineffective passing as Grace was like family to me and had been a part of my life as long as I can remember. Grace also took on the role as my God Mother and I am honoured by this. My thoughts and prayers are with you all during this very difficult time xo

    Goodbye Aunt Grace. Always my favourite. The picture is perfect. The smile, the easy laugh, and the twinkle in her eye is how I will always remember her.
