I knew Grace from soccer. Our daughters played on the same team at COPA. Even though I didn’t know Grace for long, she left a big, beautiful impression on me! I always gravitated towards her with her warmth, her beautiful smile, her positive energy and the way she made you feel so comfortable. I feel so sad for all of you. She was an amazing woman and mother! Lauren, I’m sure she will influence your life in wonderful ways from heaven.
Lots of love from Karen, Zeke, Kat and Žiema

I’m so sorry to hear about Grace, she was a sweet person and would do anything for anyone. I remember her as the MEMORIAL SCHOOL mom that was involved in everything. She will be missed by everyone she touched.
