Trying to put down in words what Grace meant to us, and how much we miss her, is an almost
Grace – our beautiful daughter, big blue eyes, wispy blonde hair and those perfect little teeth.
She had such a beautiful, engaging smile, even at times when you would think she didn’t feel
like smiling at all, there was always one there. Loved so much by us, her big brother, Joshua,
and all our family, she was an incredibly special little girl.
There is, and always will be, an empty space in our lives, that nothing can ever fill, and for that
reason, part of us will always be sad. But we hold onto the many happy memories of the times
we shared with Grace, the unconditional love she gave us, and the immense courage she
showed. We can think of the very many happy times and the things she did that made us smile and laugh.
Grace liked music and would do her own little dance when she heard a song she liked, and
like all children, every new achievement gave us so much pleasure. The things that we took
for granted now have a special place in our hearts. The holidays we shared and the favourite
places we visited together, all of these memories make us smile.
We have set up this tribute fund in Grace’s name because we know how hard it is for the
individuals and families who experience metabolic diseases. We hope that one day there will
be cures for these terrible diseases, but until that time, it is important that there is continued support, help
and love for the families affected by them.
Thank you to everyone who has supported us over the last two years.
You can shed tears that Grace is gone, or you can smile because she lived.
You can close your eyes and pray she will come back, or you can open your eyes and see
all she has left.
Your heart can be empty because you can’t see her, or you can be full of the love you
You can turn your back on tomorrow and live for yesterday, or you can be happy for
tomorrow because of yesterday.
You can remember Grace and only that she is gone, or you can cherish her memory and let
it live on.
You can cry, close your mind, be empty and turn your back,
Or you can do what Grace would want, smile, open your eyes, love and go on.
Rest in Peace Grace, our beautiful angel.
