    I had Gracie in my Project Unify club at MMS. Gracie was the definition of kind and accepting. She always had a smile and was such a joy to be around. This news is devastating. My prayers are with the family. May they find comfort knowing she is with our Lord.

    Gracie was in my sculpture class this past year of school, she was one of the sweetest girls I have ever met. She was always in class smiling and always willing to help me and others with their projects as much as she could if help was needed. I didn’t know her personally, only spoke to her a few times, but my heart broke hearing about her passing. My prayers are with the family at this very difficult time. Rest In Peace, sweet girl ❤️
