Aunt Gracie was always so sweet. She always had a smile and a kind word. Her name was exactly who she was a woman of God a woman of Grace. She will be missed. Love and prayers for all my family.

Chris I wish I could be there today. Keep the faith and remember she is smiling down at you. She is with the Father no more crying and no more suffering. Love Aunt Marva

A loving mom to all of us than ran the Corsica Str marathon. Always taught us right from wrong, as well as showing us unconditional love. Even though life takes us down different roads it's always fantastic to see someone who help mold you into the individual you are today. I can still hear her say " Darnell, I am so proud of you". Mama Ellis, you will always be apart of me forever. Thank you for keeping us on the straight and narrow. We all love you.
Love Darnell Gatewood-Honesty

Gracie I'm lost for words. I thought that we still had time for you to get healthy and then we could get together for our long over due feast, but that was not to be. Gracie I never knew a Truer life sister friend than you. So for now, my sister, I will end this tribute as we always ended our conversations with I Love You. Rest in Paradise

My dear dear friend, I am still stunned but must accept that I have lost you. My heart breaks to know we won't have anymore lunch meetings and phone chats. I always loved you and say good bye for now until we meet again. ❤
