We begin to remember not just that you died, but that you have lived. And that your life gives us memories too beautiful to forget.. Especially the smile.

So sorry to hear about Grace. I remember her well from the restaurant and at MM. She was kitty-corner from Mom there and I would see her often. She always had a smile.
