I love and miss you very much. I know you were watching over us today! As soon as Amazing Grace started to play the whole room filled up with sunlight from the small stain glass window. I know that was you letting us know you were ok!

We want all of you all to know that you're in our thoughts and prayers. We thought a lot of Ol' Nanny, she was a sweet person. I will never forget her yellow cake with the fudge icing she made, boy the angels in heaven are in for a real treat. If you all need us for anything don't be afraid to ask. May God bless you all in the days ahead.Take care of Ol" PaPa and tell him if he needs us for anything to just ask. Love you all.

I met Grace at the Masonic Home and thought she was a lovely woman, soft spoken and with a lovely smile...and I think my mother (Louise Stephenson) and Grace were lucky to have been in Masonic and Sam Swope Care Center and to have received the care they got with such dignity
