PRAYERS go out to all of Grace’s Family . We are so sorry for your loss of such a Beautiful Friend. Please accept Our Condolences. Theresa(Malaponte)& Gene Pendleton & Family.

Grace was like a second mom to me during my teenage years. She always knew (always) when we were up to something. I can hear her still – “What are you guys up to?” But she’d just smirk and let us to our mischief. Sunday lunches at the Sanders house were like weekly holiday dinners with family and friends all gathered for a stock pot full of sauce and meats.

Sending prayers to the whole family she will missed by everyone that she touch in their lives. So sorry for your loss George. God bless all of you.

I will miss the good times we always had with you on Christmas Eve laughing at the cookies, and eating amazing food. We loved your style, charm, and the way you loved your family. Playing Domino’s, talking about the Chiefs, and the next big thing Steven was up to. Thank you for all the love you gave us, and your sisters. You will be missed dearly here on earth.

Love Marc Harrison
