Grace was in her final year of becoming a Certified Nurse Midwife when she was first diagnosed. However, because of her dedication to Midwifery, the Frontier University awarded Grace an Honorary Masters in Nursing Degree, in February of this year. Travel was also one of her greatest passions especially to Belize, visiting with family numerous times, Belize held a special place in her heart, especially since it is the birthplace of her husband. Even those who only met Grace a few times knew her warmth, sincerity, devotion to God, her fierce love of her friends, and her stubbornness.
