Mrs. Gray was my neighbor and friend for many years. She was so kind and loving and supportive to me and my family. We celebrated and grieved, laughed and cried through many seasons in our lives. I loved her dearly and I have missed her terribly since she moved away but I’m comforted now to know she is healed—she’s home 💜
