I hung out with her only a few times with my husband, Richie Sadler. Although i didn't really "know" her, i loved her right off the bat - her outlook on life was so upbeat and she had such a great sense of humor. She joked about being the "designated driver" and i just thought, oh that's cool, she's offering to be the DD. It wasn't until later in the evening when my husband told me she was joking around (due to her vision issues, driving was not an option) that i realized how cool she truly was. She didn't take herself too seriously, but she was such a giver, Mary Grace was simple JOY personified.
Janet, Sean, Paul, and family and all the many, many close friends Mary Grace had...I am so very sorry for your loss. I was blessed to meet Mary Grace and blessed to have heard such fun, wonderful and sometimes crazy stories about her in Richie's high school days. She truly left an amazing mark on this world.

Also, I have NEVER seen a funeral home with such an amazingly long line of people waiting to pay their respects. The line wrapped around the building! I wasn't able to attend, but i drove past the funeral home and almost had to stop the car to cry...but not out of sadness, but by seeing how loved Mary Grace truly was. Janet, thank you for bringing her into the world. I can't imagine the heartbreak you feel...but thank you for allowing all of to share in the joy that your daughter created during her far-to-short time on this earth.

My prayers are with you guys,
(Rebecca Sadler)
