My condolences for your family. When my baby sister passed away, my family and I gained true comfort from the promise at Acts 24:15. There it promises that there is going to be a resurrection in which we will be able to welcome back our loved ones who have passed away. This gives us something we can really look forward to. I hope that you all find comfort from this promise as I personally have.

We will always cherish our loving moments in time shared with Aunt Grace. She loved her family and friends with all of her heart and soul. We hope she is dancing in Heaven but not kicking so high that she is breaking light bulbs as she did here on earth. (True story!) Love, Tammy, Wendell, Jackie, Julie, Scott and families.

She will be missed. She was a wonderful person from my childhood. I grew up just down the road from her and she worked with my mother at the U S Border Patrol in Houlton .
