Today we inter our beautiful daughter, Grace. We welcome everyone to her funeral mass to celebrate her amazing life. Even if you never met her and she has inspired you, please come.
Ken and I are completely devastated. Know that we see all your posts and words of prayer and support. We love you all. For those that attend, know we see you and appreciate you being there. We might not reach each of you to speak with, but we know you are there for Grace.
