Miss Grace took care of all 3 of my children in the nursery at Inman Mills. She made an impact on their lives along with mine. I have never forgotten her over many many years. I know she is joyfully rocking and singing to all the angel babies in Heaven including mine. Rest easy Miss Grace. Your time here is done.

With Love
Kelly, Delaney Jordan and Gabe(RIP)
