Gayle, Shannon, Stacy, Sharla, and the rest of the family, I am so sorry for your loss. I will never forget Grace and how sweet she was to me. Every time I seen her she was smiling. She will be so missed, but you will be seeing her again. Her soul has flown on the wings of a dove to join loved ones in heaven. Each of you are in my thoughts and prayers. Love all of you!

Gale i'm sure this was not a shock at this time in your moms life but still the same I know it must hurt tremendously. Your mother was always so good to me as well as your dad Tommy. I'm glad Mother and I went to visit with your mom the last time I was in KY. She even remember me and that made me feel good as she was struggling with memory at that time. I remember many fun things with your family as a child. Your Mom is dancing with Tommy and having a long talk with Ricky. I'm sure she is the happiest she has ever been.Wish I was home to give you a big hug. God Bless and my prayers I love you and your family. Russ Waddell
