    Words cannot express to the family the amount of pain and sympathy the family is going through at this time. I pray an army of Angels circle around them in their time of grief, and that their daughter always be near them in spirit. Gracelyn was a beautiful soul from God who charmed all with her sweetness of heart and smile. She will be missed always.
