Father in Heaven,
Today we remember Grace.
We remember her as mother,
grandmother, friend and neighbour.
We are thankful for her life.
We are thankful for the fine sons she gave life to, Trevor, David & Malcolm.
We look for your goodness, Father, and find we do not have to look far.
You are near to us today.
