Beloved Grace, thank you for your wisdom and love, I cherished every moment we spent together . It was a privilege for me to have known you. Forever in my heart! Thank you for teaching me the prayer of Saint Anthony...

If then you ask for miracles,
Death, error, all calamities,
Leprosy and demons fly,
And health succeeds infirmities.

The sea obeys and fetters break,
And lifeless limbs do you restore;
While treasures lost are found again,
When young and old your aid implore.

All dangers vanish at your prayer,
And direst need does quickly flee;
Let those who know your power proclaim,
Let Paduans say, “These are of thee.”

To Father, Son, may glory be
And Holy Spirit, eternally.

Pray for us, blessed Anthony.
Make us worthy of the promises of Christ
