Thanks for passing on the word! It is very upsetting as She was a big support when I first came to the Grace site. She was very inspirational! She gave great advise! I wish I could extend my condolences to her Family! God Bless her Sole! Aunt tootsie (Lorrie from Ohio)

I was just trying to explain to someone the other day the impact of losing friends from GRACE has on me and was talking about CS, Simon and Ned. They didn’t understand, but we all do.

Sherry, I bawl like a Baby every time. My Husband doesn’t understand. We are like a Family on here and Inspire too! Each time we loose someone it is like loosing a Family member! I fear when my time comes there won’t be anyone to let my Grace Family know! You all mean so much to me! Lorrie (Aunttootsie).
