My sincerest condolences Deacon Anderson, Sons and family of Sis. Gracie. I will definitely miss her sitting on the end seat in the middle aisle. Her smile and laugh was contagious. During the holidays she made sure the children she saw had some type of toy and some candy.
Family, look to the hills from whence cometh our help, our help comes from the Lord. I pray God will continue to comfort and give you peace today and the days to come.
Goodnight my Deaconess Sister, RIHP 💜

To Deacon Anderson and family,
I will truly miss Mrs. Gracie who was a faithful member of our Truth Seekers Discipleship Class.
We will miss her faithfulness in seeking God's word and being a voice in God's Kingdom. Mrs. Gracie was a faithful member at the First Saint John Cathedral and the Truth Seekers Discipleship Class, never allowing her circumstances to keep her from attending church, she knew all to well that her hope and strength came from God. Even in pain, she would always press her way.
We will miss her smiling face and boisterous laughter, she kept us laughing!
Mrs. Gracie loved children. She would bring candy ever Sunday for them, and her and Deacon Anderson would distribute gifts to them on special occasions.
I am soo glad that I had the opportunity to be apart of her life.
I will miss you Mrs. Gracie!!! I love you with all my heart! You get to take your place that we constantly talked about getting to. I will see you when I get there..

I will miss Mrs. Gracie she always had a kind word and a piece of candy, she always had the best candy, one of the few times she stood and spoke at the church I will never forget, being from a small town we always called purses “pocketbooks”, she made my day when she reminded the church members to dig down in their pocketbooks and give a really good offering!!! May you rest in a wonderful peace!!! I love you and will always keep a piece of good candy until we meet again!!!
