We love you Gracie!!

Yesterday was a very sobering day for many. We are mourning with the Gledhill family as they have said goodbye to their sweet eternal angel Gracie. Gracie most definatly had a mission in this life. She has touched countless lives with her fight and her beautiful grace. I had a friend call me yesterday telling me how much Grace and her family have inspired her for the better. She wants for her and her family to be better, to be an eternal family. To Michelle, Tom and your sweet little ones, we are praying for you, that the comfort and beauty of the Savior will rest upon you now and in the weeks and months to come. You have touched our lives, you have stayed strong in the fight and have taught us to be better people. Gracie will never be forgotten!!
This quote has helped me and given me some insight into the passing of little ones.

“The Lord takes many away, even in infancy, that they may escape the envy of man, and the sorrows and evils of this present world; they were too pure, too lovely, to live on earth; therefore, if rightly considered, instead of mourning we have reason to rejoice as they are delivered from evil, and we shall soon have them again.” -Joseph Smith

Thanks Hilary for such kind thoughts and words, they mean so much. It is with much sadness and very heavy hearts that we say "good-bye" to Gracie girl for a time but know we will see her again someday and that Families are Forever. Thank you again for keeping Gracie on your blog site and updating all who want to know. You're the BEST!!!

Hey Hillary- Are you doing something for Gracie's tree for FOT's? Me and my family would love to help and offer ideas etc if you are interested. Let me know either way. We were going to do something regardless but I saw in your friends comment below something was mentioned about Gracie's tree and thought it would be cool to combine ideas. Let me know. Thanks!
