Grace was wonderful and her legacy continues with Amy and the grandchildren. Ken, Grace, and the Diederich family made Sable Ridge special. Grace has enriched many lives and will be missed, but fondly be remembered. Our prayers go out to her family.

Mrs. Roy was one of those special ladies who was always there with a helping hand especially to her family. Amy and I worked together for many years and I remember her mom coming with her on working trips with us so Christian could be with his mom since we had to be gone for days and weeks at a time. What a wonderful smile and laugh she had. She will be greatly missed by many! Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Roy family.

Aunt Grace was my "second" mom. She was always so kind and loving. She wanted to help in any way she could. When my children were little she would pick out the exact right toy for them. And she absolutely loved babies. My Mom and Dad looked forward to their visits and trips with Ken and Grace. Aunt Grace loved her family and was so proud of all the accomplishments of her children and grandchildren. I have many fond memories of Aunt Grace. I will miss her greatly.
