My Story

On March 26, 2003, our lives were forever changed when we met our wonderful and beautiful daughter. On August 1, 2014, our lives were once again changed when we learned that Grace has a bone cancer called osteosarcoma. After several months of knee pain starting in May, followed by physical therapy all summer to treat what we thought was simply a dislocated knee cap, we discovered that it was something more serious. We are reminded by scripture (Matthew 6: 25-34): "Do not worry about tomorrow. Tomorrow will worry about itself. Worrying does not add a single hour to your life. So, we will not worry." We prepared to help Grace fight through this with the help of our faith, family, and friends. And Grace did fight, long and hard, enduring so much - and all of it with such grace - until she went home to heaven on March 25th 2018. That day, love and joy and peace, but mostly GRACE won. Death did not. Nor will it ever. Through our tears, we will continue to remind one another what Grace’s incredibly beautiful life taught each of us…that love and faith and hope have no finish line. Nor will it ever.
