This precious lady (Mother Grace) will truly be missed. A true saint of God that is now in His presence rejoicing forever more. I thank God that I got to know her for 2 1/2 years when she moved here to Gallatin Tennessee. She was a true example of God's love to everyone she met. Love and prayers to Sister Carol and family

Sister Dupre will always hold a special place in my heart. She ministered to be during the most difficult time of my life. She shared a personal experience with me & told me I would be ok. I had great confidence in her & believed her. And it came to pass...I got through the difficult time! Viv
