Grace's passing

I just found out about Grace's passing this past weekend when we went to bring her flowers and a card for her birthday. My family and I are broken hearted. My grandmother shared the room with Grace before her passing and we could not have asked for a nicer, more loving soul to have shared the time there with. I used to bring her a cheeseburger and hot fudge sundae when I would go visit...every time I see the Golden Arches I will think of her now. RIP, Grace...say Hi to Muffy for us! You will be missed!

I would like to express my feelings on Grace's passing. We were all so fortunate to have had Grace in our lives for many years. Her wisdom, faith, love for others, and unselfishness will be remembered forever. I always felt like a part of the Purdy family, and was very Blessed to have known them; (Ruth was my Godmother). They will forever be in my heart. God Bless all of you!
