Dear Ron and Family, I love and miss my Sister Grace. I keep thinking I need to call her and catch up on our lives. So difficult to know and try to believe her passing from us. I will see her soon in heaven, because of the way this world is spinning out of control. Blessings to everyone.

Uncle Ronnie and family, We will always cherish the memories of coming to visit and the times we spent with you. Aunt Grace had a great way of making us laugh. She always ended her conversations with something funny to say and had a great sense of humor. We will miss her! You are all in our thoughts and prayers.
Love Steve & Bonnie , Brad, Brandon & Nicholas Wenger
