Condolence & Memory Journal

So sorry for the loss of another member of a wonderful Family. My late Parents thought the World of Grace and her Mom Annie Mae. I know Grace will sure be another needed Angel in Heaven. I and my brother Hershel would cut the grass at Graces home in the Summer time when we were just kids. I'll never forget the little Spider Monkey they had and how it would get loose from time to time. The little Monkey would head straight up a tree and all the Kids in the Mill hill would drop by asking Grace and her Mom about it. The little Monkey knew who loved it and it would always return home.

TO ALL OF GRACE'S FAMILY THAT I KNOW. YES GRACE AND I HAD A WONDERFUL FRIENDSHIP THAT STARTED AS LITTLE GIRLS IN FOREST CITY, NC. WE HAD MANY GOOD TIMES TOGETHER OVER THE YEARS. WE SHARED AND LAUGHED TOGETHER AND SOMETIMES CRIED TOGETHER.
AS I AM WRITING THIS TEARS COME TO MY EYES AS SHE WAS LIKE A SISTER TO ME. I AM GOING TO MISS OUR TALKS OVER THE PHONE MANY TIMES IN THE PAST. I HAVE WONDERFUL MEMORIES OF THE TIMES WE SPENT TOGETHER AS WE WENT ON A LOT OF VACATIONS TOGETHER. I LOVED HER DEARLY AND MY HEART IS SO SAD NOW THE I CANNOT BE THERE WITH THE FAMILY AS I KNOW SO MANY OF THEM. PLEASE KNOW THAT I AM KEEPING ALL OF YOU IN MY PRAYERS THROUGH THIS TIME OF SORROW AND GRIEF.
