She is my bff from high school mother. I remember she always had a smile on her face with a big hug for me. She will be missed by many, and when we think of her a smile will appear. 😊💗

Grace Cashman, my beloved Aunt Gracie, was the kind of person who was always smiling and happy. My memories from childhood are vivid and loving. She always made the people around her feel special. Her last words she spoke to me were, 'beautiful, so beautiful' -- again, I felt so special and loved in that moment! What a genuine sweet soul. She's going to be terribly missed. My mom and her two sisters loved the beach. Their annual trips to Cape Cod together were a highlight of my Mom's year, every year. So fun, so sweet, the sisters are now together again. I love you Aunt Gracie!
